ACCOUNTANCY FIRM PM+M has expanded their group network and opened a new full time office in Bury.
The chartered accountants group includes professionals in accountancy, tax, corporate finance, wealth management and technology as well as being business sector specialists. The firm has a clear strategy to expand into the north west to become the best firm of finance professionals.
Jane Parry, managing partner at PM+M, said, “Having a permanent presence in Bury was the next step for us as a business. The town and its surrounding areas are hubs of entrepreneurial activity.”
The new office is in addition to PM+M groups current Blackburn HQ, and office base in Burnley, overall with a total of 88 team members across the three offices. The Bury office is led by Helen Clayton, a PM+M partner and head of their corporate services.
Helen Clayton said: “Over the past few years, our client base has grown right across the North West and we have known for some time that we wanted to open an office in Bury. However, it was essential for us to find the right location. We are now really excited to make our mark and our focus is firmly on growing our reputation in the town and becoming its leading firm of accountants.”
