Can Adams lead the firm to further growth this year?

Menzies

Menzies is a top 20 firm of accountants, finance, and business advisors who operate around the Surrey, Hampshire, and London areas, therefore providing clients with easy access and local knowledge.

The firm has over 400 employees, and an annual turnover of £40m. They were described as the ‘best performing firm outside of the top 10’ by Accountancy Magazine.

Many of Menzies’ clients are currently expanding overseas and so they greatly benefit from the outward perspective that the firm can provide through their membership of HLB International, a leading global network of independent accounting firms and business advisors which spans 130 countries.
