Iain Mackinnon began his career at Harrison Black, an Isle of Wight accountancy firm, where he spent seven years before becaming a partner in 1995. He was instrumental in building their corporate finance portfolio and, in 1997, he left the firm to establish his own FCA-authorised corporate finance boutique, Pinder Mackinnon & Company.
The firm excelled in the healthcare and recruitment sectors, completing many successful deals and playing an pivotal role in the buy and build strategy of Careforce Group plc. The Company also completed the take private of Professional Staff plc, acting on behalf of and subsequently selling, the Isle of Wight Private Hospital plc.
In 2007, the firm became fully authorised to conduct MiFiD business with full client money authorisations, an approval not held by many corporate finance firms.
Iain also sits on many successful company boards including being Chairman of Garsington Opera Limited, a company which he has been directly involved with for over 20 years.
In 2009, the firm re-branded as I.F. Mackinnon & Company and added merchant banking and wealth management services to its portfolio as well as advising clients on disposals, acquisitions and financing on transactions in the £5 – 50 million range.
