Top 20 accountancy firm, Wilkins Kennedy, is pleased to announce a successful merger with locally-based firm, FBR Accounting Ltd., as of Monday 5th October 2015.

Wilkins Kennedy is no stranger to growth and this is the most recent merger to take place in its Solent region.

The new merged entity will be known as Wilkins Kennedy and two directors and eleven staff will join Wilkins Kennedy from FBR. This will expand the current professional services offering, with particular areas of specialism in cloud services.

Ian Talbot, Managing Partner of Wilkins Kennedy’s Winchester and Romsey offices, said: “The merger will allow us to expand further on current offerings, particularly in the cloud accounting sector and the use of software such as Xero, as the new members of the team will be able to provide additional expertise. We look forward to having them on board.”

Richard Harvey Director at FBR Accounting, said: “Wilkins Kennedy was a good match in terms of business ethos, as both companies have a key focus on client delivery and excellent customer service. The merger will keep that promise, as we will now be able to offer clients wider and more specialist support.

Dave Fenn, Managing Partner of Wilkins Kennedy LLP, said, “on behalf of the firm, I am delighted to welcome all our new colleagues and their clients to Wilkins Kennedy, and I wish them all the best for a successful future with us.”
