Accountancy firm grows presence in Northallerton

On the 1 October 2013 Hanby & Co merged with Armstrong Watson Chartered Accountants.

This now makes Armstrong Watson one of the largest independent chartered accountants and financial advisers in the region. The group established itself 146 years ago and now has 15 offices in the North of England and South West Scotland and has a combined turnover in excess of £20M.

The current Northallerton Armstrong Watson office was looking to expand is service offering and found in Hanby & Co a very similar ethos to client care and service. The majority of Hanby & Co staff will be joining the established Armstrong Watson team in their high street office in the Northallerton town centre. The combined team will be headed up by Armstrong Watson’s lead partner Peter Molyneux, and supported by Hanby & Co partners Ian Cartwright and Peter Brierley.

Armstrong Watsons Managing Partner Paul Dickson said: “Hanby & Co is a well respected firm in Northallerton and both Ian and Peter have run a good practice with a very loyal client following. The combined knowledge from both offices will help in continuing to develop Armstrong Watson’s position in Northallerton and the Yorkshire region, and I know we will have a strengthened team focused on providing private individuals, fast growing start-ups and established businesses with the right financial advice”.

Peter Molyneux went on to say that “both firms have built up strong and professional reputations in Northallerton. Now as one office I feel confident that existing clients will gain an even wider level of advice under the Armstrong Watson banner across both accountancy and financial planning services”.

Hanby & Co partner Ian Cartwright agrees “the merger of the two businesses should bring to Northallerton a level of expertise and service that will be extremely beneficial to the town".
