Our people

Alex Walsh


“As a Director of Corporate Finance & Audit, I’m hands on in terms of client interaction and pride myself on being the first port of call for clients should they have any query, no matter how large or small.”

I am an FCA with over 25 years of experience in audit and assurance, the majority of which has been with Rayner Essex.

I have been actively involved with the corporate finance side of Rayner Essex since the early part of my career and it was as a response to the increase in enquiries for this service that I stepped back in to the classroom in 2022 and sat and passed with distinction the formal ICAEW/CISI Corporate Finance qualification.

In my role as Director of Corporate Finance & Audit, I oversee our audit services department, ensuring that our team is properly resourced and trained, as well as dealing with regulatory requirements. I assist a broad range of clients, from SMEs to complex groups and components, with their audit process.

My experience with working with clients in a wide range of sectors, including manufacturing, contracting/building, wholesale, retail, healthcare, property, and investment, has benefited my corporate finance work, allowing me to work closely with clients who are dealing with complex challenges in the realm of business and corporate finance, such as acquisitions & disposals, tax and financial due diligence, and business valuations. My focus lies in supporting our clients to successfully achieve their objectives, while providing proactive and value-added advice on a wide array of business and regulatory issues. I’m also committed to simplifying complex projects into easy-to-understand, transparent processes and keeping our clients informed every step of the way.

Outside of work, when I’m not accidentally referring to the office as “home”, I like tinkering with electronics, avoiding my children and sitting down a lot, although in recent years the sitting down a lot has gradually been replaced with running a lot, just to further reinforce the idea of continual personal development!
