Macclesfield-based Harts Accountants and Cheadle Hulme Chartered Accountancy firm Steven Glicher & Co have announced their merger.

The deal took place at the end of July.

The Steven Glicher & Co office in Cheadle Hulme office will remain open for clients based in the area.

Steven Glicher & Co was set up in 1991 and grew significantly over the past 27 years.

Mr Glicher said he is looking forward to the new opportunities ahead: “I believed that a larger organisation would allow us to provide a broader range of services to our clients.

“We conducted an extensive search within the region looking for an opportunity like this, and Harts have really exceeded our expectations.”

He added: “Harts share the same values that we have held in advising our clients over the years and together we will continue the tradition we have for excellent service in an environment that we and our clients want to be part of.”

Melissa Bowers, director at Harts Accountants, added: “We are delighted with the expansion of Harts through our merger with Steven Glicher & Co.

“The merger further strengthens and broadens our team, skillset and, most importantly, our ability to give even greater support and services to our clients.

“Steven’s personal approach is closely aligned with the Harts ethos, with a personal, friendly service that supports both start-ups and larger established businesses alike.”

She said: “Clients have commented that both practices are ‘not a typical accountancy firm’ which is something both Harts and Steven Glicher & Co feel sum up the added value service they both strive to achieve.”
