One of Northamptonshire’s leading accountancy firms has made a significant step forward in its five-year growth plan with the purchase of another of the region’s well respected practices.
Elsby & Co which has offices in Sywell, Market Harborough and Milton Keynes has acquired Trevor L Newell & Co in Rushden which employs a team of seven and has a client base of 600.
For Carl Elsby, who set up the firm 24 years ago, the purchase advances his desire to see Elsby & Co listed in the top 100 UK accountants index. It is the third acquisition the firm has made since 2008 and takes the firm to a new level of presence in the region.
The purchase will see four professionals from Elsby & Co integrate with the resident team at Trevor L Newell & Co’s Rushden office.
The lead accountants from Elsby & Co managing the merger and client base will be Leona Bateman and Claire Emery. Both are senior managers who have excelled in their careers at the firm’s Sywell headquarters and are looking forward to the responsibility that will go with overseeing the new operation.
The business will be known as Elsby & Co incorporating Trevor L Newell & Co. Trevor Newell, who founded the practice in 1979, will stay on at the firm while his business partner, Peter Knight will retire with immediate effect.
