Martin Davies - Partner

Martin started his career and qualified as a chartered accountant with Ernst & Whinney (subsequently EY).  After spending a year working for EY in the USA, he left, and founded Miller Davies in 1984. 

He is the firm’s managing partner.

Away from the office Martin enjoyed a long career playing hockey.  However, the ravages of old age have now led him to “hang up his stick”, but he continues to support his local Club at the weekend, with, perhaps, an occasional post-match beer.  Martin has four children.   

Robert Bedford - Partner

Robert qualified as a chartered accountant in 1992 and joined Miller Davies soon thereafter. He deals with a broad spectrum of clients, including high net worth individuals, and oversees much of the practice’s more complex taxation matters. 

His interests away from the office include, golf, travel and motorsport. 

A bit of an early bird, it’s not unusual for him to be at his desk whilst the rest of the world are still in their beds.  Some might say that he makes up for this with the amount of holidays that he takes! 

Ian Cole - Partner

Ian joined Miller Davies in June 1996; qualifying as a chartered certified accountant in August 2000 and becoming a partner in October 2006.  He became a member of the ICAEW in November 2010.

Ian deals with audit, accountancy, taxation and general business advice, and controls the teams on all the firm’s audits.  Ian also has particular skills in using Excel and likes nothing more than to be setting up a new spreadsheet!

When not at work Ian can usually be found either on the golf course, on the dance floor, or cheering on Crystal Palace.

What you may not know about Ian is that, in a previous life, he was a British Champion as a member of both The Penge Latin Team and the South of England Latin Formation Team.

Proud of his Welsh heritage, Paul is also an avid Chelsea supporter and has been all around the country to watch them play. 

In March 2020, he became a father to a son, Jack.

Cathy Burns – Office manager

Cathy joined the firm in 2010 as office manager. Prior to this, Cathy was a full-time homemaker and has three lovely children.  The majority of Cathy’s experience was developed whilst she worked for CMG (Computer Management Group) Ltd as a personal assistant and project office administrator.

Something you may not know about Cathy is that she is a keen amateur ballroom and latin dancer. She has also raised money for charity by participating in The Moonlight London Walk for breast cancer.

Nicky Ford – Payroll manager

Nicky joined the firm in July 2014 as payroll manager and processes and oversees all Client payrolls including pensions upload and declarations, and all related tasks.

Nicky recently became a grandmother to her grandson Ollie and has since affectionately been referred to as Nanny Nic!
