William Gunn CA

Willie Gunn has been a partner in Charles Burrows & Co since 1986, five years after he joined the firm.

His father’s role as a manager with Eagle Star Insurance led to Willie’s family making several moves around Scotland during his childhood. Born in Glasgow, Willie started his schooling in Stirling, continued it in Aberdeen and finished at George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh.

From Napier University, he started his training with Thomson McLintock in 1977 and, after qualifying, moved to Charles Burrows & Co in 1981.

He knows how much clients appreciate the sense of continuity that the firm provides and in the relationships and regular contacts that they have with the members of the Burrows team.

Willie helps the practice stay at the forefront of technological developments, applying the latest IT thinking and products to provide clients with the best possible service.

His sporting enthusiasms now focused on golf, Willie served as treasurer of The Royal Burgess Golfing Society of Edinburgh for six years. He has also been treasurer for many years of the Scottish Association for Children with Heart Disorders, whose trustees have the use of Burrows’ offices for their meetings.
