ABERDEENSHIRE-based accountancy firm, Acumen Accountants, is expanding its reach with a key merger south of the border. As a result, the growing company has bolstered its management team with the appointment of Andrew Wilson as a new director.

The firm officially merged with Surrey-based accountancy practice, Ambly Accountants Limited, in December.   The strategic union brings together the two accountancy firms, reinforcing Acumen’s commitment to further growth and expansion on the back of its recent acquisition of Aberdeen-based accountancy firm, Graeme Munro and Company.
