Stephenson Smart merger
RNS Chartered Accountants and Stephenson Smart & Co merged on 1 October 2011, with the new combined firm practicing under the RNS brand.
Senior partner at RNS Ian Pounder said, “We are delighted to be merging with Stephenson Smart. The firm, like us, has a long-standing reputation for personal, quality service.”
“All points of contact will remain the same, as all staff are transferring to RNS. A seamless transition from a client’s perspective was key to the deal for all of us. Clients can be reassured that their interests have been central to our discussions.”
Kevin Cross, Managing Director of Stephenson Smart & Co said, “RNS was the right firm to join forces with, to move the business forward. It is a business with a fine reputation, with a philosophy of promoting excellent client relationships. I have every confidence our existing clients’ accountancy interests will continue to be in safe hands.”
The offices of Stephenson Smart in Oswald Road, Scunthorpe, and Market Place, Brigg, will relocate, with staff moving to the nearby premises of RNS in Scunthorpe and Brigg. The office on the High Street in Barton will remain open.
Our practice now employs over 50 people with extended services and expertise available to clients new and old. This merger reinforces our commitment to this area and will help us grow our business.
