We are delighted to announce that on 16 November 2021, PM+M acquired the Accrington office of Haworths Chartered Accountants.
We are proud and excited to share this news and we are really looking forward to embarking on this new journey together, as we welcome the Haworths team and their clients to PM+M.
The Haworths team will continue to be located at The Old Tannery in Accrington for the time being, with the intention of relocating to PM+M’s head office in Blackburn in March 2022.
We’re delighted to be welcoming Paul Spencer, who led the Accrington office as a director of Haworths, to join the PM+M team as a partner. Paul’s director colleague, Mark Schofield, will also be on hand during the transition period, assisting with client introductions before focusing on managing the Haworths Settle office.
Paul Spencer commented: “PM+M is a highly regarded name in the North West and offers a range of services to its clients which encompass and strengthen our own, as well as providing additional expertise in areas such as tax advisory, research and development tax credits, and corporate finance.
Paul added: “Our hope is that joining PM+M will mean greater things for us and our clients. The increased resources, along with PM+M’s commitment to quality and people development, will ensure that we can continue to provide an exceptional client service.”
Jane Parry, PM+M’s managing partner, said: “Haworths has an enviable reputation, so we are delighted to welcome the team and their clients to PM+M. We have known the directors of Haworths for many years and we see real synergies between the two firms as we share a client-focused approach, have similar cultures, shared values, and a range of complementary services. I’m confident this deal will add value and will help us to continue investing in and growing our East Lancashire presence.”
