Simmons Gainsford joins Sumer Group to harness the power of collaboration and champion SMEs

In December 2023, Simmons Gainsford joined the Sumer Group, a rapidly expanding top 15 UK accountancy practice with an overarching mission to champion SME businesses and offer local delivery supported by national expertise.

The partnership with Sumer will provide additional benefits to clients and the firm alike, in terms of resource, scale, and access to even more specialist expertise. In fact, just 12 months after the first transaction, the wider team is now made up of over 1,000 people in more than 40 offices across the UK, and revenue has surpassed £100m.

Sumer plans to continue this rapid growth through 2024 with further co-investments, together with the launch of additional services to benefit its SME clients.

Darren Hersey, Senior Partner Simmons Gainsford said:

“Having reviewed our strategic plans for growth and development it became increasingly clear to us that our ambitions would be more easily achieved by joining forces with likeminded businesses. However, it was crucial to us that whoever we chose to partner with shared our core beliefs and desire for delivering high level services to SME businesses. Having spoken to Warren and his team of colleagues, it became clear very early on that we had met the right people and we are very excited to be joining the Sumer Group and to help shape its journey.”

Warren Mead, Chief Executive Officer of Sumer commented:

“Simmons Gainsford is a forward-thinking firm with a fantastic reputation with entrepreneurs, startups, and scale ups. Selecting the right partner in this important part of the UK market was always going to be a crucial step on our journey and we are delighted to be working with Darren and his team. We couldn’t have ended up with a better business to be working with in this region.”

At Simmons Gainsford, we are proud to be working alongside Sumer, Monahans, RMT Accountants, RT Marke & Co, Jerroms, Carpenter Box, Cowgills, and EQ Accountants. Together, we want to champion smaller and medium-sized businesses in the UK, through the provision of quality accountancy and professional services.
