Mitten Clarke announces major development with new merger

February 2021

Russell Bedford's member firm for Stoke-on-Trent and Manchester, Mitten Clarke, and leading accountancy firm, DJH, have announced that they have taken the fantastic opportunity to merge and come together. From the 31st March, the combined practice will be known as DJH Mitten Clarke, breaking into the top 100 UK accountancy practices, ranking number seventy-five. 

Leading the DJH Mitten Clarke team will be Executive Directors, Scott Heath and Paul Hulme, who will work alongside fellow board members, Gary Chadwick (Audit Director), Michael Burgess (Tax Director) and James Beardmore (Operations Director). Dave Roberts will continue in his role as Non-Executive Director of Technology, transforming the business’ technological approach.  

Scott said “The decision was a surprisingly easy one. DJH is a business that shares our core values and, most importantly, a passion for people and the community within which they operate.”

He continued, “We’re bringing two great firms together to form an experienced and ambitious market-leading team, who’ll provide exceptional business support to our clients. Though we will be operating as one company, our clients can rely on the same personal, open and honest working relationships that they’ve come to depend upon. Coming together will allow us to strengthen our infrastructure, develop our specialist services, create greater opportunities and, ultimately, enhance the expert advice we offer to our clients.” 

The 128 strong collective team will make their home at the Festival Park offices in Stoke-on-Trent, with the whole team moving in following a comprehensive refurbishment.

Paul added “We’re working hard behind the scenes to make sure the transition is smooth and seamless, so clients will continue to receive the very best service with no disruption whatsoever.”

“We are merging much more than two balance sheets and client-bases. Our cultures are very much aligned and the priorities of creating the very best place to work for our team and offering bold and effective advice to our clients, will remain front and centre.” 

The team will be strengthened further with the merger of sister companies, Wealth Experts and DJH Wealth, ensuring complete financial advice for clients. The new financial planning firm will be known as Wealth Experts from DJH Mitten Clarke as of 31st March with Executive Directors, Richard Johnston and Paul Darley, leading the team and developing an innovative investment proposition.
