New Shropshire and Cheshire bases unveiled after take-over

Summer saw Barringtons welcome seven new members of staff to the team after completing the acquisition of Mercer & Co in Market Drayton & Nantwich

The company has handed over a portfolio of more than 400 clients spanning companies of all sizes, from sole traders to limited companies, including many with business interests overseas.

Barringtons, which has offices on Queen Street, will continue to operate both bases in the town.

Managing Director Phil Wood said: “This practice has only become available because of the illness of Steve Mercer.

“Over the years he has built up a very successful business while on a personal level, he is a true inspiration to anyone going through the trauma of serious illness.”

Joining us from Mercer & Co are client service managers, Anne Allwood and Alison Galloway, supported by Enid Avery, Chloe Lewis, Daniel Large, Stephanie Newstead and Lynda Brammer who all live in the local area.

Mr Mercer said: “Looking after clients is not just about ‘doing their books’ but advising them on all manner of financial issues which impact on their lives and businesses. Barringtons has the same ethos and as I undergo treatment, and face periods in hospital, I will know these clients are in safe hands.”
