The IPM's CV

Colin Tiffin FCA

I was born and grew up in Essex Attending an Independent school in Brentwood. Married in 1967 and have 1 son and 2 daughters.

I qualified as a chartered accountant in 1968 and almost immediately took over the family accountancy practice of Tiffin Green due to the ill health of my father. I remained senior partner until 2004 when I retired after 35 years service. Subsequently I set up a small consultancy practice advising family owned businesses which still exists.

My involvement in service organisations was with the Round Table movement at Club and Area level. I was also involved with my institute as a District Society officer and was a Support member providing counselling and advice to fellow accountancy practitioners.

Currently living in Suffolk near Bury St Edmunds I am chairman of The Friends’ my local church charity. The church where Tiz and I were married in 2008.

I became a Freeman of the City of London in 1992 and joined The Worshipful Company of Needlemakers. I served on Committees and held the office of Treasurer from 2008 to 2014. I was installed as Junior Warden in September 2015.
