Meet the team

Ian Hornsey FFA FAIA - Managing Director

I established Devonports in 1994 with a handful of personal friends as clients and since that time the practice has continued to grow. I am a Fellow Member of the Institute of Financial Accountants and from February 2013 became Chairman of the Essex branch of the Institute, as well as being actively involved nationally. I am also a Fellow Member of the Association of International Accountants, and have recently taken on the role of Quality Advisor, which sees me visiting other practising accountants on behalf of the Association to give guidance on Practice Assurance and Anti Money Laundering Regulations.

I enjoy keeping busy and in particular being able to look after and advise my varied client base, which includes small micro businesses to medium size clients, especially in this ever changing world of compliance and tax changes. I make sure that clients are both fully informed and compliant, and that they take advantage of the tax breaks that are available to them. My friendly manner ensures that the fear factor is removed for clients. Indeed most comment that I am unlike any other accountant that they have ever met.

I live with my partner, who I have been with for over twenty years. I enjoy fast cars and fine dining and the odd bottle of champagne.

Ermal Krutani (Giuseppe) AFA AAIA - Director

I joined Devonports as an accounts clerk in February 2003, and have worked alongside Ian ever since. In April 2014, I became a director of the company, looking after my own portfolio of clients, as well as assisting Ian's clients. I am fluent in three languages, including Italian and Albanian. I am the ‘all-rounder’ of the team, being able to assist both companies and individual clients in all areas of accountancy. My friendly manner and approachability ensure that clients feel at ease when talking through any issues.

I enjoy playing football and participating in outdoor sports. A keen traveller with a Mediterranean background, I have a vast knowledge of cuisine from that area. Just ask me about my roast lamb!
