Cooper Parry, the Midlands-based “rebels of accountancy,” enjoyed a “fantastic” 2019, expanding into London, Bristol and the US, and reporting double digit organic growth.

This 10% organic revenue growth for the year puts them amongst the fastest growing firms in the UK, according to the 2019 Accountancy Daily Top 50 survey. Between 2015 and 2019, the firm has more than doubled in size to £37m.

In the same period, headcount has also more than doubled to 445. In 2019 they also made 40 promotions and hired 143 new starters, including five Partners.

2019 also saw Cooper Parry invest in a major refurb of their East Midlands office, focused on increased flexibility and digital ways of working.

Ade Cheatham, CEO, said: “It’s been another fantastic year. We’ve put the power of culture front and centre once more, and being recognised and awarded for our efforts always feels good.

“With three new offices on both sides of the Atlantic, a world-beating IT team to complement our core business areas, and consistent engagement with some really exciting entrepreneurs, we’re in position to raise the bar again in 2020.

“Doubling in size since 2015, we’re ahead of the curve in our bold ambition to become a £150m+ business. We’re still Disrupting. We’re still Leading. We’re still Making Life Count. And that’s what it’s all about.”
