Simon Knight

Manager at Hayes Knight Limited


Tell us about (your business) and what your business does?

Hayes Knight is an innovative chartered accountancy practice that works beyond the numbers to keep our clients’ businesses future fit. Our primary role is to improve your life by helping you grow your wealth and protect your assets.


Why did (your business) choose Newmarket as their base?

Newmarket is a fantastic central hub, linking us to our clients across the central regions with far more accessibility and ease than being in the city centre.


What is the one accomplishment (your business) are most proud of in 2018 and why?

Hayes Knight successfully transitioned to a paperless office, with over 40 staff now working electronically; we aim to minimise our impact on the environment.


Tell us about your involvement with the Newmarket Business Awards?

Hayes Knight have sponsored the awards for two years now and its been a wonderful experience helping to celebrate the Newmarket business community.


Which category did you sponsor and who was the winner?

This year we sponsored the Newmarket Retailer of the Year Award, which alongside tough competition, Superette took top honours.


What is Newmarket’s best kept secret?

Little & Friday’s gravitational pull…I don’t think you can walk past that place without grabbing a chocolate chili doughnut!


Describe Newmarket in 3 words:

Style, Confidence, and Elegance.


Why do you love working in Newmarket?

Being in Newmarket not only offers a top-notch retail experience, but also access to some stunning surrounding parks. What I love about working in Newmarket is having the ability to access parks like The Auckland Domain, Mt Hobson, or Mt St John for a lunchtime walk.
