Sibbalds, who won the prestigious Small Firm of the Year at the 2014 East Midlands Chartered Accountants Awards, have acquired long established City firm R V Hoad & Co.
R V Hoad & Co was established in 1975 by Victor Hoad. The firm operated from offices on Alfreton Road in Derby and provided a full compliance service to small and medium sized businesses in and around Derbyshire. Sibbalds specialise in helping owner managed businesses from a wide range of industries including construction, manufacturing, engineering and the service sector.
Commenting on the move, Victor said
“It was a difficult personal decision for me to retire but at 69 years old I felt the time was right.
In looking for a firm to take over my practice I wanted to ensure I had a firm who would not only continue to give my clients a good professional service but who would deal with their affairs in an approachable and friendly manner.
In Sibbalds I am confident that I have found a firm who tick all the boxes.”
David Bowler, director of Corporate Services at Sibbalds, stated
“We were really pleased that Victor chose us as the preferred bidder for what is a very well respected and well established practice. Victor shares our values of providing a high quality, professional and personal service to his clients and we look forward to continuing that and developing long term relationships with the clients who Victor has looked after over many years.”
