Rowan Lindsay


Rowan joined NLP in 2015 having never heard of the firm and is now one of our biggest advocates! Having spent most of his career with boutique firms he recognises the importance of client service and delivering on promises in this competitive market.

Rowan offers a broad skill set including compliance, financial systems, business planning, modelling and forecasting and partnering. He has a very “hands on” approach and sees himself like an “on-call” GP, encouraging out of hours service!

Specialising in medium and large businesses, of note in hospitality, retail and manufacturing, Rowan enjoys and is inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of his clients who are forward thinking, transaction driven and driving economic growth and employment in the UK and overseas.

He likes to keep fit mostly by middle distance running with the odd visit to a gym. With two adult children, he’s now looking forward to travelling in the off-peak season for the first time since they were babies!
