MHA, the network of regional accountancy firms and UK member of Baker Tilly International, have rebranded the nine UK member firms under the MHA label
The UK network was set up in November 2010 and was originally made up of six member firms: MHA MacIntyre Hudson, Carpenter Box, Henderson Loggie, Larking Gowen, Broomfield Alexander, and Moore & Smalley. It has since added Bloomer Heaven, Tait Walker, and Monahans, and now supports clients in over 50 UK locations.
Of these firms, several have already adopted the MHA brand as part of their name, and the three firms now adding the MHA prefix are Henderson Loggie, Larking Gowen and Tait Walker.
The network said the brand changes are designed to bring MHA’s national and global strategies closer together to further support its growth; over the last financial year MHA reported a 6% increase in turnover to £152.6m and a rise in its international client base across all industry sectors.
The change also sees MHA more closely aligned to the new Baker Tilly International network global brand and ethos of ‘Now, for tomorrow’.
Rakesh Shaunak, group chairman of MHA said: ‘Closer national and international alignment will play an important part in the next phase of our strategy for growth.
‘Fully embracing the network philosophy of “Now, for tomorrow” underlines our commitment to playing our part in this growing and dynamic international network. Bringing our UK member firms closer together is a natural extension of this connected network philosophy.’
Ted Verkade, CEO of Baker Tilly International, said: ‘The decision by MHA to embrace the global brand philosophy reflects its dedication to unified global representation, core values and brand positioning, while its autonomous ownership structure remains intact.’
MHA joined Baker Tilly International, a top 10 global network of advisors in 145 territories, as the UK member in 2014.
