Armstrong Watson is delighted to announce that on 3 May 2011 it has merged with the Carlisle office of O’Reilly, Chartered Accountants, a leading local accountancy practice.
Thirteen staff from O’Reilly will join Armstrong Watson at its Rosehill offices in Carlisle. The Carlisle (Rosehill) office is headed by partner Louise Utting, who has been a partner in Armstrong Watson for nine years. Louise has a strong regional team and this expansion continues to strengthen Armstrong Watson’s presence as the leading local professional accountants and advisers in Carlisle.
Louise will be working closely with the expanded team to ensure both clients and staff benefit from this union. The range of services offered by both operators has great synergy, allowing a smooth transition for clients from O’Reilly to Armstrong Watson. The team will continue to offer accountancy, tax advice, corporate finance and wealth management in the Carlisle area, although Armstrong Watson as a group can offer O’Reilly clients an even greater range of services.
Louise Utting comments:
“O’Reilly is an incredibly well respected firm locally and the combination of our skills will continue to strengthen Armstrong Watson’s position in Carlisle and north Cumbria. The amalgamation of the two offices will see a greater potential to deliver our services to both current and future clients. Our sector specialisms will benefit from the synergies of our combined professional team allowing us to provide businesses across the region with sound financial advice. In the long term this will make a real difference to the development of clients’ businesses and financial affairs.
“O’Reilly has built up a strong and professional practice and we feel confident that both their clients and employees will enjoy continuing success under the Armstrong Watson banner. As a team we are both passionate and dedicated to delivering excellent client service and I am confident that the combined teams will provide businesses with invaluable advice and the personal touch needed to help their businesses develop to their full potential, now and in the years ahead.”
