Business accountancy and advisory firm Cowgills has acquired the business recovery arm of Manchester-based accountancy practice RPG for an undisclosed sum.
The move will see RPG’s head of business recovery Alan Coleman join as a partner and James Fish will join as director within Cowgills business recovery team.
Four further members of staff will also transition across as part of the deal. The move takes Cowgills business recovery team to three partners, four directors and 10 staff.
Partner and head of business recovery, Jason Elliott, said: “We quickly identified that the values of RPG’s business recovery team closely aligned with our own and the team’s skill set is a superb fit for Cowgills.
“Alan and James bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and I look forward to welcoming and working with the team.”
He added: “This acquisition is part of our planned programme of growth and will help to further position Cowgills business recovery offer as one of the strongest in the region.
“ With uncertain times still ahead for many businesses our strengthened team will continue to provide highly specialised support and advice to help businesses and protect as many jobs as possible.”
The team will work with Cowgills from both its Bolton and Manchester city centre offices.
