Managing Director
Iain Mackinnon started his career at Harrison Black, a firm of accountants on the Isle of Wight, where he spent seven years, becoming a partner in 1995.  He was instrumental in building their corporate finance portfolio, and in 1997 he left the firm to establish his own FSA-authorised Corporate Finance boutique, Pinder Mackinnon & Company.

The firm built up a specific expertise in the healthcare and recruitment sectors, and completed many successful deals in these arenas, including playing an instrumental role in the buy and build strategy of Careforce Group plc, and completing the take private of Professional Staff plc, and 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, approvals not held by many corporate finance firms.

Iain also sits on the board on a number of successful companies including being Chairman of Garsington Opera Limited a company which he has been directly involved with for over 20 years.

In 2009, the firm rebranded as I.F. Mackinnon & Company, and added merchant banking and wealth management services to its portfolio and advises clients on disposals, acquisitions and financing on transactions in the £5 – 50 million range.
