Russell Bedford firm Hallidays acquires Kevin Pitchford & Co.

August 2017

Hallidays, the Manchester, UK, member of the Russell Bedford global network of independent accounting and business advisory firms, has added over 120 clients to its portfolio through the acquisition of Stockport accounting practice, Kevin Pitchford & Co. The announcement comes as another huge boost for Hallidays who earlier this year acquired Cheshire-based practice, Edmondson & Co.

As part of the new acquisition, Kevin Pitchford will join the team led by Hallidays director Anna Bennett, helping SMEs to grow and develop their business, particularly in the academy and not-for-profit sectors.

Anna Bennett, director said: "We are delighted to officially welcome Kevin. Kevin has worked closely with Hallidays for some time supporting us with our academy work and through our 'Accountants Support Forum', which supports sole practitioners. Kevin is an excellent fit for Hallidays and I welcome the knowledge and expertise he brings to our team."

Kevin Pitchford said: "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 worked alongside Hallidays for a number of years and have benefitted from their expertise and input. I feel that they are an ideal choice to take over my practice."
