It’s the latest step forward for the Stoke-on-Trent headquartered group which has seen 50% growth in the last quarter and now has a 249 strong-team.
Executive Director, Scott Heath said “It has always been a personal ambition to open a substantial Manchester City Centre office and we started to make progress taking space within WeWork in Spinningfields, but then the pandemic hit. Our conversations with the team at Lloyd Piggott opened up a new opportunity that is right for our business, and more importantly our team.”
He continued, “When bringing two firms together, it’s always critical to make decisions based on culture and ours are very much aligned; they’re honourable, they’re ambitious and above all, they’re passionate about people and the community.”
Lloyd Piggott’s Sue Redmond, added, “Since our story began over 125 year ago, we’ve always looked out for positive new partnerships and innovative thinking, and this is why we’ve been successful. Although our past is important to us, it’s our future that counts, so it is crucial that we seize great opportunities at the right moment to carry on moving forward.”
“DJH Mitten Clarke bring with them a number of specialist services, such as; capital allowances, R&D, wealth management and commercial & residential funding, along with group services such as marketing, learning and development and recruitment. Ultimately, this will enhance the advice and support we offer our clients.”
Sue added, “Our aim is to create the very best place to work and the new partnership will also allow investment in wellbeing, training and social programmes; all key to us working together as a happy team.”
St. George’s House will remain home for the Lloyd Piggott team, however as of 4th October, will take on the name DJH Mitten Clarke, becoming the Manchester office of the practice.
Sue will continue to lead the Manchester team, alongside Tax Director, Paula Abbott and Client Services Directors’ Chris Abbott and Joanne Beamish. Lindsey Shepherd will also join the office from DJH Mitten Clarke, creating continuity for the practices’ existing North-West clients.
2021 has been a remarkable year for the accountancy firm. Mitten Clarke and DJH, two well-known North Staffordshire accountancy practices, joined forces to form DJH Mitten Clarke and the addition of Lloyd Piggott follows closely after the acquisition of Chester’s Morris & Co.
