Russell Bedford firm Hallidays acquires Edmondson & Co.

May 2017

Hallidays, the Manchester, UK, member of international professional services group Russell Bedford, has added over 100 clients to its portfolio through the acquisition of Cheshire accounting practice, Edmondson & Co.

As part of the acquisition, Paul Edmondson of Edmondson & Co., will join the team led by Hallidays director, Valerie Wain, which has expertise in sourcing financial opportunities for SMEs and individuals.

Valerie Wain said: "We are delighted to welcome Paul to Hallidays and our team. Paul has been closely linked with Hallidays for some time through our 'Accountants Support Forum', which supports sole practitioners, so he was an excellent fit for Hallidays. I welcome the knowledge and expertise he will bring to our team."

Paul Edmondson, who will continue to work closely on his portfolio until his retirement, added: "After much consideration I recently made the decision to retire from full time work. I have considered the future of the practice with a view to merging with a local firm, who could offer a professional service, with the additional support that would be beneficial to both clients and myself.

I have known Hallidays over a number of years, and I feel that they are an ideal choice."
