Sheffield accountants Hart Shaw and Atkin Macredie & Co have merged.
The merged company will be based at Hart Shaw’s offices on Sheffield Business Park.
Sarah Brock joins Hart Shaw as a partner, while Nigel Oates and Paul Boden become consultants.
Hart Shaw senior partner Paul Dawson said: “The merger is fantastic news for both as it allows two already strong firms in the region to grow to the next level.
“As a firm, Hart Shaw has always sought to invest in staff and resources and the merger allows us to accelerate future investment plans for the benefit of all of our clients.”
Sarah Brock has been a partner at Atkin Macredie for 21 years and specialises in working with owner managed businesses of varying sizes and across market sectors.
She said: “It is the right time for us to merge with Hart Shaw.
“With my fellow directors at Atkin Macredie & Co coming up to retirement this move provides our client base with security and continuation, as they will still be working with the same people, just under a different banner.”
