TOP 50+50 firm Shelley Stock Hutter is to join international alliance Abacus Worldwide as a new independent member firm.
As revealed by Accountancy Age last year, the firm has been on the lookout for an international network as a result of greater inward investment work, and domestic clients expanding into fast growth foreign markets.
Bobby Lane, a partner at SSH, has been appointed a member of the Abacus Advisory Board. He will work alongside the five existing members. In addition, Lane will also assist with the addition of member firms elsewhere in the UK and Europe.
According to Abacus, appointing Shelley Stock Hutter was a “strategic move” that would set the tone for continued membership development in other key markets around the world for the association.
Julio Gabay, Abacus Worldwide president and CEO stated: “London is a world financial center, and having the right firm as a member there brings immense value to Abacus members and to clients of members looking to expand globally.”
