MacIntyre Hudson forms UK group

MacIntyre Hudson, a UK member firm of Morison
International, has formed an association that combines the services
of six British firms.

MacIntyre Hudson has teamed up with Hudson,
Broomfield & Alexander; Carpenter Box; Henderson Loggie;
Larking Gowen; and Moore and Smalley.

The group of firms has combined revenue of £80
million, which would make it among the six largest associations of
independent firms in the UK.

Individually, firm revenues range from £5
million to £32 million. Carpenter Box, one of the smaller firms,
has two offices and 60 staff, while the largest firm is MacIntyre
Hudson with 10 offices and 450 staff.

The firms will work together, sharing
expertise, strategies and market opportunities, providing clients
with a deeper capability than they would receive if they operated
individually.

Better national coverage

MacIntyre Hudson principal Rakesh Shaunak said
the concept was formed as a cost effective way for member firms to
reach out to a broader range of clientele without the need for
merger. For example, Scottish firm Henderson Loggie can serve
clients that have requirements in England while maintaining its
independence.

Shaunak believes the association can bring in
combined revenue of about £100 million in the next year, which will
be achieved through the addition of more firms and organic
growth.

Shaunak said there were no plans for the firms
to eventually merge although nothing had been ruled out in the
future.
