MHA Monahans’ growth and strategic business development has been recognised in the Accounting Excellence Awards 2018, with the firm winning the Practice Growth Award.

The Practice Growth Award, which was presented to the firm by Rachel Riley, recognises excellence in growth through the use of a number of strategic initiatives to bolster and support growth of a Practice.

MHA Monahans was highlighted for its geographical expansion, with mergers and acquisitions over the past three years developing the firm’s presence across Wiltshire, Bath and Somerset; as well as the development of specialist services such as probate and private tax which enables clients to benefit more from the services they receive. Client service is a key driver for excellence for MHA Monahans and by putting this at the centre of everything they do, the firm is always looking at ways to improve.

However, it was also MHA Monahans’ approach to investing and retaining staff that impressed the judges.  With regular engagement to ensure that staff are aware of opportunities within the firm for them, as well as being part of the decision-making process on staff-related matters, MHA Monahans’ approach enables them to recruit and keep the best professionals.

Simon Tombs, Managing Partner, said: “I was proud to accept the award on behalf of the Practice, along with Steve Fraser, James Gare, Martin Longmore and Steve Elliot. The award is great recognition for the whole firm, and the role our team played in the continued growth and success of MHA Monahans.

“Growth, innovation and development are parts of every aspect of the business, however we felt it was always very important not to lose sight of the most important part – the people who we work for and the people who work for us.

“Over the past few years we’ve welcomed many new clients and colleagues from across the region and their skills and passion has also enabled us to expand the services we offer and to make the most of a changing landscape where, in many instances, our role as business advisor plays a crucial part in more than just accounting but also throughout someone’s professional and personal life.”
