Chester accountancy practice rebrands and promotions announced at the DJH Mitten Clarke Group

Chester based accountancy practice Morris & Co has undergone a major rebrand and will now be known as DJH Mitten Clarke.

The change of name comes two-years after the accountancy practise was bought by the DJH Mitten Clarke Group.

Meanwhile, the DJH Mitten Clarke, with offices across the West Midlands, NorthWest England and Yorkshire, is celebrating a string of promotions.

 Tom Burt and Jonathan Jones have been promoted to become Senior Client Managers in the General Accounts department,  Kate Stockton is now an-Assistant Client Manager in the General Accounts department, while Helen Wilson and Matthew Norton are promoted to become Senior Client Managers in the Dental Accounts department.

DJH Mitten Clarke Group is a top-50 UK accountancy company with head offices in Stoke-on-Trent.

The Group has seen high growth in recent years, having completed a merger and three other acquisitions since 2021.

Acquisitions include Manchester’s Lloyd Piggott, Baker’s in Walsall and Novis & Co in Leeds.  The rebrand of Chester’s Morris & Co, which has a base at Cheshire Oaks, will further enhanced the groups presence in the North West.

Morris & Co Director, Desirie Lea, said: “This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us to fully join forces with DJH Mitten Clarke and become the Chester office for the Group. We have managed to achieve great things together in the last two years, and we feel like now is the right time to build on our partnership.

“Taking on the DJH Mitten Clarke name will further strengthen our infrastructure, allowing us to fully align our technology, systems and processes. It will also provide our clients with direct access to in-house specialist advice including tax advisory, capital allowances, R&D and commercial funding. Ultimately, enhancing the service that we offer.”

Scott Heath, Chief Executive Officer, who leads the 275 plus DJH Mitten Clarke team commented: “We have seen tremendous growth over the last 12 months, and I’m thrilled that Morris & Co will further support us to achieve our ambitious goals for 2023 and beyond.

“The partnership adds to the specialist advice and knowledge we offer across the group, with Morris & Co bringing expert specialist teams who support clients within the dental, franchise and ophthalmic sectors.”

Desirie will continue to lead the team based at Cheshire Oaks Business Park, alongside fellow Director, Chris Shaw.

The Chester office will undergo a major refurbishment and modernisation project which will start in the coming weeks.

The partnership comes just two months after the Group announced the rebrand of their Leeds office, formerly known as Novis & Co.


Acquisitions, since 2021. include Manchester’s Lloyd Piggott, Baker’s in Walsall and Novis & Co in Leeds.
