Northern revenue,one of the big four firms, saw their revenue rise 4% to £221m this year, also, the accountancy firm latest figures show that their national revenue also grew 4%, rising to £1.77bn.
The senior partner of the Leeds office, Chris Herald said “The last year has been one of working harder than ever in challenging conditions and I’m pleased that the considerable efforts and achievements of those based in the Leeds office have contributed to the firm’s growth.”
“We’ve invested in the business, regionally and nationally, with particular emphasis on risk consulting and management consulting which is already paying off, given these areas are leading the growth charge.”
The great results for the firm come after a year which saw them add new clients to their portfolio, which included Bettys & Taylor Group and Engage. The rise was also helped by the floating of WANdisco and the secondary buyout of Symingtons.
KPMG have also doubled the size of it’s public sector client base and is advising the council on the £1bn transport fund relating to the Leeds City Region ‘city deal’.
Mr Hearld added: “There are signs that market conditions are improving slowly, and the first few months of our new financial year have been encouraging. So it stands to reason that we will continue to invest for the future, endeavouring to support the prosperity of our exciting client portfolio and the wider City Region in which we live and work.”
“To give a tangible example; much of the building of our new Leeds office development will take place in 2013.”
