PARTNER / CONSULTANT - David Tussie, FCA
Born 1951, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, of British parents; David emigrated to Manchester in 1962, and again (!) in 1970 to Sydney, Australia, where he qualified as a Chartered Accountant. David decided to return to Manchester in 1977, where he obtained reciprocal qualification to enable him to practice in the UK. In 1984, after having obtained enormous experience in both commercial and private practice, David decided the time was right to set up his own business and Tussies was born. Being part Argentinian he is, naturally, a keen football fan, and is a passionate supporter of Manchester City. In January 2024, as Tussies began its 40th year, David decided it was time for him to take a back seat and leave his (much!) younger partner, Nic, and staff to drive the practice forward. David is now happily enjoying his new role as a Consultant to the business, as well as having time to pursue his many hobbies, including driving his wife crazy playing his guitar!
