In the last three decades, Smith Cooper has become one of the most trusted Midlands based accountancy and business advisory firms working with SME’s and owner managed businesses. Over the past 6 months, Smith Cooper Birmingham has grown by 40 per cent, across a range of specialisms offered at the office.
The Tax team has increased by three with the arrival of Jill Kaur who joined as a Tax Director in Advisory Tax department alongside Shahjad Singh, VAT Specialist and Dalveer Sarai. Michael Bourke has joined the Audit team as an Audit Senior and Adam Widerkiewicz joins as a Corporate Finance Senior.
Jackie Hendley, Partner in the Birmingham office commented: “This has been a strong year for Smith Cooper's Birmingham office. We have gained a great reputation for serving the needs of owner managed and ambitious businesses and have invested heavily in our team to continue to be innovative in our market, making us a full-service business advisory practice offering IT support, software, communications solutions, independent financial and mortgage advice alongside more traditional professional services. Small to medium sized and family owned businesses are looking for business advisers who offer all round holistic advice and that are with them throughout their journey, with the ability to sit outside of their area of specialism and look at their business as a whole. The increase in our Birmingham team replicates a strong growth in the advice we offer to our clients as well as an increase in the number of clients we now service.
"This has led to changes in the way we recruit and develop our people, to not only ensure we recruit talented advisers who best fit our clients’ needs, but that we offer them a development path that allows them to develop and progress within the organisation.”
Smith Cooper continue to support the local market place, through support and activities with The Birmingham Chamber of Industry and Commerce; Colmore Business District and Marketing Birmingham to name a few.
Smith Cooper has further exciting plans for growth in Birmingham, anticipating the office will continue to prosper and grow during 2016 and beyond...
