New Hinckley Office for Armstrongs

We are pleased to announce that following a merger with Hinckley-based accountancy firm Lester & Co, Armstrongs has expanded into Leicestershire. 

The new practice, Armstrongs Lester & Co, is located on Station Road in the town centre and will service clients across Hinckley and the surrounding area.

Mark and Michael Lester, who have run Lester & Co since the 1980’s, decided that the time had come to prepare for their retirement. The merger is part of their succession plan to exit the business.

Mark Lester said “There were a number of options available to us, but with a longstanding client base, we wanted to ensure that our clients would be well serviced after our departure.

“Armstrongs is highly regarded across the Coventry & Warwickshire area and shares similar values to Lester & Co, so was the perfect fit.”

Paul Farmer, Director at Armstrongs Lester & Co commented “As a firm, we have been looking to expand into Leicestershire for some time. So, when the opportunity came to merge with Lester & Co, we knew this would be the ideal route to grow our practice.

“We are excited about the merger and look forward to working with the existing Hinckley team and their clients. We are a proactive firm and are proud to be part of the Hinckley business community.
