February 2019


International professional services group Russell Bedford has expanded its presence in Africa with the appointment of TMK & Co. in Kampala, Uganda.

Established in 2001, TMK & Co. is a registered audit and accounting firm. The firm is considered to be one of the leading indigenous firms in Uganda, providing audit, accountancy, tax, advisory and management consulting services. Consulting services are delivered via a separate legal entity, Prime Solutions Ltd.

TMK & Co. has a strong focus on audit, especially the audit of development aid programmes and projects funded by national and/or international donors and institutions including EU, World Bank, UNDP and UNICEF. The firm's client base also includes central and local government agencies, NGOs and privately-held companies.

Speaking of the appointment, Russell Bedford CEO Stephen Hamlet said: “After a phenomenal start to 2019, having already welcomed an incredible four new members in January, I am delighted to welcome TMK & Co. to the network. As a leading firm in Uganda, TMK & Co. is a great enhancement to our network, particularly in developing our African region where we have seen substantial growth in such a short and recent period of time.”

Tom Mpagi, senior partner at TMK & Co., added: “It has been a long-standing ambition of our firm to join a well-established and recognised international network, to allow us to collaborate with other members in bidding for regional assignments for international agencies. We are thrilled to have been accepted as a member of Russell Bedford and we look forward to connecting with other members and working together to enhance and develop our respective firms.”
