Baldwins expands in North East with Evolution deal

Evolution, which has offices in Newcastle and Wynyard, has become part of the £40m turnover Baldwins Accountancy Group which now has over 550 staff

MIDLANDS-BASED Baldwins accountants is expanding its presence in the North East with further investment in the region.

Chartered accountants and business advisers Evolution, which has offices in Newcastle and Wynyard, has become part of the £40m turnover Baldwins Accountancy Group which now has over 550 staff.

This move is part of Baldwins’ national strategic expansion plans for 2016, and follows a deal that saw another North East accountancy firm Rowlands and its seven offices join forces with Baldwins earlier this year.

John Baldwin, director at Baldwins said: “Rowlands has given us an exceptional start in the North East and now we have the confidence to further invest in the region with Evolution, continuing to build on the excellent brand of both firms.

“We’re thrilled to be joining forces with Evolution in the North East, this gives us greater opportunity to utilise our specialist services across the region. We now have around 200 staff in seven offices across the region from Alnwick in the North to Wynyard in the South.

Martin Barber, managing partner at Evolution, said:  “Since Evolution was created six years ago from a management buyout we have grown consistently and doubled our workforce, and becoming part of the Baldwins Group will allow us to bring our fresh, dynamic approach to an even wider audience.

“This is very much the next chapter in the development of our business. Our clients will get access to an even broader range of business advisers and we will be able to connect them to even more potential customers and suppliers across the UK.  Our people will also have a broader range of career options to look forward to.”
