MHA Carpenter Box Heads into 2018 following a record 2017
Sussex-based chartered accountants MHA Carpenter Box is welcoming in 2018 on the back of a record year, driven in part by the rapid expansion of its Gatwick office.
The firm, headquartered in Worthing, has seen its Gatwick headcount grow from four employees at start-up in June 2015 to 27 today, 15 of whom have been recruited in the last 12 months. Driving this growth has been an impressive increase in the client base being managed from Gatwick which, added to the strong performance of the Worthing office has made for an exceptional 12 months.
To aid its long-term growth, MHA Carpenter Box also recruited its highest-ever number of new trainees last year, nine of whom were taken on at Worthing and three in Gatwick.
Chris Coopey, Partner and Practice Director at the firm, commented: “The last 12 months have been exceptional, with the total number of employees now approaching 160.
Our focus on service innovation and sector-related specialist support along with the national and global reach we can achieve through MHA and Baker Tilly International has certainly paid dividends, to the point that we now count multi-national businesses among our clients, regularly winning new business at the expense of accountancy groups with global profiles.”
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
