Guy Clifton Head of Local Government Advisory London +44 (0)20 7728 2903

I am an experienced CIPFA qualified accountant and management consultant with more than 20 years' working in a wide range of operational, advisory and assurance roles. My main focus has been in the local government sector and my expertise includes public financial management, service improvement, governance and collaboration. I've also worked previously in the health, criminal justice, central government, non-departmental public body and regeneration sectors.

I am now the head of local government advisory, where I lead a national team that focuses on providing finance, governance and collaboration solutions to local government, police and fire clients. I'm a member of Grant Thornton's local government board and a keen advocate of social media.

Outside work my time is taken up by sport, music, travel, history, current affairs and family.
