Crawley has further strengthened its standing in financial services with the move by a prominent accountancy firm to the town centre.
The relocation by Reeves to offices in Griffin House creates a convenient focus for mid-sized firms in particular to gain a personal, local and international tax and accounting service.
Crawley MP Henry Smith hailed the move at an evening event for the business community to mark the official opening of the offices.
“I am delighted to welcome Reeves to Crawley, which has a burgeoning financial services sector to rival towns such as Reading. The firm is an important addition to the town – one that can help provide an important service to mid-sized firms.”
Reeves chairman Clive Stevens stressed the strategic importance of the location: “Our Crawley office is a major complement to our offices in Canterbury, Chatham, London and our insolvency and restructuring office in Eastbourne.” He added: ”We have the expertise to offer a full partner-led personal, local and international advisory, tax and accounting service to all businesses, entrepreneurs and other organisations, regardless of their industry sector or whether they are a start-up or a large established business.”
The firm is sharing the site with solicitors Rawlison & Butler, who also welcomed its new neighbour. “We are excited to have another professional firm within the building. Crawley is a busy town with great development prospects.”
Reeves recently invited clients, partners and other professional corporates to an informal “meet and greet” event at its new offices. Peter Samuels of Samuels Corporate Associates, who attended said: “Reeves are a very different firm that offers an exceptional personal service throughout, with one point of contact for each client. I have referred a number of my clients to the firm.”
Another guest, Alistair Aird of Santander, added: “We have built up a good relationship with Reeves and will continue to work with them. The firm is a good fit for us, with similar ambitions with their work with entrepreneurial businesses.” In addition to the local team, Reeves carries expertise across accounting, assurance and tax disciplines, Shirley Smith – Partner of Reeves stressed, providing industry specialists across a spread of business sectors. “The local team can draw on the combined talent of 300 colleagues as required.”
Reeves is committed to supporting the local communities in which it conducts business, Paul Roe – Partner for Reeves and President of the Crawley & Gatwick Chamber of Commerce added. “Our nominated charity, Crawley Open House, does great work helping homeless people in the area, while we are also sponsoring Crawley Town FC this season.”
