Humber-based accountancy firm Forrester Boyd has acquired Hull-based practice Graybrowne.
The acquisition is part of Forrester Boyd’s growth strategy and will support the firm’s evolution from a “traditional” accountancy practice to a firm that “delivers a holistic range of services”.
Graybrowne was established in 1979 and its headquarters are situated in Grimsby and has offices in Scunthorpe, Louth, Skegness, Beverley and now Hull.
Forrester Boyd chairman and partner David Everatt said: “The acquisition of Graybrowne positions us firmly in the centre of the City of Hull. Graybrowne is a firm aligned not only to our growth strategy, but also with our values and beliefs and a perfect fit for our business.
“As we move more into the realms of a true business and financial partner with our clients through the delivery of not only accountancy and tax services but corporate finance and wealth management, we are excited to be able to offer these value added services to our new clients.”
The firm also revealed Mike Beckett, partner at Forrester Boyd’s office in Beverley, will manage the Hull office.
He added: “This acquisition is a very exciting opportunity for the firm which comes at an extremely challenging time for many businesses. I look forward to working closely with Nick and Anne in continuing to deliver a first class service to their clients.”
