The Team

David Kennard FCA

David qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Cooper Basden & Adamson in 1982. He remained in the profession with successor firms performing a number of roles including that of PA to one of the senior partners and audit manager of clients including a quoted property investment and development company, Lynton plc.

Lynton was acquired by the newly privatised British Airports Authority (BAA plc) as part of its strategy to develop the property assets around its UK airports and David was offered a position with BAA as Chief Accountant to the Lynton subsidiary. This role included project accounting for airport-related development schemes, corporate tax and company secretarial duties and the management of the large property investment portfolio as it was sold to release funds to finance BAA’s airport development strategy. David also provided accounting and project services to BAA’s international division which was set up to develop the group’s international airport interests in the US, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

Following the acquisition of BAA by the Spanish group Ferrovial, David retired from the company and set up a small accountancy practice serving a number of local businesses and individuals. He joined Withall & Co in 2014 and provides various accounting services, including the preparation of statutory accounts, VAT returns and other assignments, for a number of clients.
