Tom Gooder
Business Development Director
Tom knew a great deal about Harwood Hutton before he joined us in the summer of 2018. That’s because for many years he had been introducing clients to us for specialist advice in his capacity as a commercial banking relationship manager at two global banks.

“My previous roles at RBS and HSBC allowed me work very closely with a number of Harwood Hutton directors, and I was always impressed with the way they handled my clients and the quality of the advice on offer,” said Tom. “So when the opportunity arose to join a firm I admired very much, I was very pleased to take it.”

Tom’s knowledge of the commercial banking sector and his impressive connections in the field of corporate finance will be a major boon to Harwood Hutton clients considering their options for financing and ongoing support.

“I’m also looking forward to revisiting some of the contacts I’ve made over the past 12 years in the UK and abroad so I can introduce them to the wide range of services provided by Harwood Hutton - services that can help accelerate their business growth.”

Tom has a degree in business management and is a keen sports fan, especially football and rugby.

Client Testimonials
  • I always get quick, clear and definitive responses from the Harwood Hutton tax team – commercial answers to commercial issues.

    Robin Berry – Morgan Management
  • Right from the outset Harwood Hutton gave us direction and great advice – and that advice has evolved over the years as we’ve grown. We’re both medium-sized companies providing a bespoke service – one furniture, one accountancy – and the relationship works.

  • I’m deeply impressed with Harwood Hutton’s extensive knowledge of tax arrangements for residential and commercial property landlords.

    Qadeer Ahmed, MD, ABA Finance
  • They really took their time to understand what was important to us and our business and the expertise we required. Whoever we speak to at HH, we get the same fantastic response and technical input. It’s a real partnership.

    Edward Finch, group MD, MRIB insurance brokers
  • I have worked with the directors at Harwood Hutton on a number of mutual client matters over many years. The reassurance of their clear, commercial and focussed advice is one of the main reasons I regard this as one of my most valuable professional relationships.

    Frank Wessely, Partner, Quantuma LLP
  • Harwood Hutton never seem to rest on their laurels. They are always seeking out new avenues and ways to improve their offering. A very forward-thinking company with staff who are always well briefed and who approach each task with drive.

    Karl Austen, MD, Surefoot Communications
  • We have engaged Harwood Hutton in several areas of structuring, including VAT issues, decoupling an SPV from a group structure and HMRC clearance for a transaction. The team have exceeded all expectations by being proactive, measured and very thorough.

    Adam Fawsitt, Director, FHT Limited
  • We moved to Harwood Hutton as they delivered a succinct and professional proposal. If anything, we have been more impressed post-move. They are a fantastic company to work with. They do truly differentiate. They have the skills and capabilities of a mega firm but with a personal service.
