Campbell Dallas and Baldwins North East set to merge
Campbell Dallas and Baldwins North East are to merge, according to an internal email seen by Accountancy Age.
Chris Horne, managing partner of Campbell Dallas, will take lead and Baldwins North East regional managing partner Andrew Little will report to him. Horne will also report directly to Cogital Group COO Steve Sharp.
“We are also taking this opportunity to reorganise our Scottish and North East region into one, which Chris Horne will lead,” the email said.
The newly formed Scottish and North East firm will join Wilkins Kennedy, a London-based Baldwins subsidiary firm acquired by Cogital Group in 2018, in reporting directly to Cogital Group’s COO Steve Sharp.
Cogital Group announced the new structure in an email sent to Baldwins staff informing them of the departures of founder and director John Baldwin, his son David and Shaun Knight – who were directors.
“Following discussion with John Baldwin, David Baldwin and Shaun Knight they are leaving the company to pursue other opportunities,” the email said.
The email also said that Baldwins CEO Alyn North is an interim appointment.
“When a permanent person is appointed to replace Alyn [North], that role will also report to Steve Sharp,” the email said.
