PM+M’s Bury office celebrates fifth birthday
The Bury office of PM+M, the chartered accountancy, business advisory and wealth management group, is celebrating its fifth birthday this week after opening its doors on the Waterfold Business Park in August 2016.
Over the past five years, the office – which is headed up by partner Helen Clayton - has gone from strength to strength. When it opened, it had a team of five which has now grown to eleven. PM+M offers local businesses and individuals a range of services including audit and accountancy, tax, corporate finance, wealth management, cloud accounting and payroll advice.
Since its inception, the team has hit various milestones and launched a number of initiatives including jointly establishing a successful networking event for senior business leaders in Bury with Clough & Willis and Handelsbanken in 2017, becoming corporate members at The Met, undertaking numerous fundraising activities for Bury Hospice and winning The Made in Bury Business Awards for Professional, Legal and Financial firms three times between 2017 and 2020.
It has also attracted a number of high profile new hires who have added their expertise including Luqmaan Essa, who joined as a director in the accounting and advisory team earlier this year, and Wendy Anderson who was appointed as a director in the private client tax team in 2018.
The business has also been recognised for investing in its team after being named a finalist for two years running in The Made in Bury Business Awards for Excellence in Developing People, and being shortlisted in last year’s Gold Employer of the Year (50 – 249 employees) category in The Investors in People 2020 Awards.
Helen Clayton said: “Opening an office in Bury was a daunting challenge but one that we have grabbed with both hands. I am local so have a real passion for the town, its wider business community, and people. The team at PM+M is fabulous and the firm’s values and culture shine through our client relationships and the way we work, which I believe has set us apart.
Helen added: “Bury boasts some amazing talent and a real entrepreneurial spirit so it’s an exciting time to be doing business here. Being part of Bury’s evolution and working closely with our clients, contacts and referrers is what drives us forward. The last five years have been phenomenal and I’m confident and excited that we will continue to go from strength over the next five and beyond.”
