Accountants shake hands on merger dealMay 10, 2013
The combined practice now has more than 6,000 clients – including some 1,500 in Milton Keynes – and 120-plus staff.
Robert Haysom, who co-founded the firm in 1991, said: “Haysom Silverton sought a merger with Hillier Hopkins so that we could provide much stronger continuity to staff and to clients. The merger enables us to do this and to provide a wider range of services, more depth in our capability, and strengthen client service.”
Hiller Hopkins also has offices in Aylesbury, Watford, Hemel Hempstead and London and works with companies in sectors ranging from advertising and design to charities and not-for-profit, as well as construction, independent schools and medical practices.
Partner Colin Howe said: “Milton Keynes is a strategically important location for the Hillier Hopkins group. There is a thriving business community and we can augment the already strong capability of Haysom Silverton through our additional resources. There is great confidence about the potential for growth in the region.”
Haysom Silverton has built its reputation in Milton Keynes by specilaising in work with owner-managed medium-sized businesses.
Mr Haysom said: “As part of a bigger Hillier Hopkins group we can help businesses and individuals with pretty much all the business and personal financial challenges they may face.”
