Neville Kavanagh - B.Sc. (Mgmt), M.Sc., M.Acc., FCA - Partner

Neville Kavanagh Partner in NKC

Neville set up NKC in 1998.  Previously Neville worked in BDO Simpson Xavier where he spent over five years in the Audit department and two years working in the Corporate Finance department.  Neville comes from an enterprising family business background where the values of hard work, belief and commitment to the job at hand were always a priority. Given Neville’s family business experience and understanding of the mindset of the owner manager NKC was set up to provide a level of service and client care to ensure that clients at all times feel comfortable with the NKC service offering. From a standing start the business has grown year on year.  Jeff Byrne joined Neville in NKC in 2003 as the tax partner.  The acquisition of Isherwood & Company in 2007 and Campbell & Company in 2010 has generated considerable momentum in the business and practically & commercially strengthened the internal skill set of all staff.  Rory O’Dwyer joined NKC, as a partner, in 2010 bringing a large group of new clients to the firm and there is no doubt that the collective experience and expertise between partners & staff has continued to improve the service offering for clients.

Main responsibilities

Neville specialises in the audit and business advisory services.   The ethos of the firm reflects the priority placed on the quality of our advisory services and clear focus on client care in every aspect of what we do.  Neville will continually work to ensure that the firm upholds this ethos and it is reflected in everything that we do.
