Russell Bedford has added Ugandan firm TMK & Co. to its network.

Based in the city of Kampala, the firm was established in 2001, and is a registered audit and accounting firm.

It provides audit, accountancy, tax, advisory and management consulting services. Consulting services are delivered via a separate legal entity, Prime Solutions Ltd.

TMK & Co. has a strong focus on audit, especially the audit of development aid programmes and projects funded by national and/or international donors and institutions including EU, World Bank, UNDP and UNICEF. The firm's client base also includes central and local government agencies, NGOs and privately-held companies.

Speaking of the appointment, Russell Bedford CEO Stephen Hamlet said: “After a phenomenal start to 2019, having already welcomed an incredible four new members earlier this month, I am delighted to welcome TMK & Co. as our fifth new member in the first month of the New Year. As a leading firm in Uganda, TMK & Co. is a great enhancement to our network, particularly in developing our African region where we have seen substantial growth in such a short and recent period of time.”

Tom Mpagi, senior partner at TMK & Co., added: “It has been a long-standing ambition of our firm to join a well-established and recognised international network, to allow us to collaborate with other members in bidding for regional assignments for international agencies. We are thrilled to have been accepted as a member of Russell Bedford and we look forward to connecting with other members and working together to enhance and develop our respective firms.”
