Rachel Doyle, formerly associate at Gerald Thomas, has also been promoted to Partner and Elinor Williams has been promoted to Director following the merger.
Brian Garland said
“Having worked with MHA in the past, it became clear that they are a very suitable partner with similar values, ethos and approaches to client care and service. While our clients will see no change in the team that services them, this merger notably enhances our offering to businesses in Swansea and across South Wales with a more comprehensive suite of professional services. As MHA continues to grow with over 100 partners and 1,000 staff, we are excited for the increased value we can offer across a higher number of business sectors in 2023 and beyond.”
Rakesh Shaunak, Partner and Group Chairman of MHA MacIntyre Hudson, said
