MiP Panel

MiPP Chairman
Garry Thickett -

Garry started work in 1976 for a small firm of local accountants and after 12 months moved into industry for the next 30 years, working in a number of different companies and industries ultimately reaching Finance Director level.

In 1998 he became part owner of a £50m business as a result of an MBO led by himself and a colleague however in 2006, despite developing this company internationally, it unfortunately went into receivership which was the trigger for Garry to set up as a Member in Practice.

Over the past 10 years he has grown his business from sole trader to a company which now employs 5 people with over 200 customers and has grown at a rate in excess of 10% every year since 2010.

After 5 years, Garry has just stepped down as Area Chair for CIMA North East England and, having spent 3 years on the Members in Practice Panel, was appointed Chairman in 2016.
