We are delighted to announce that with effect from 8 September 2014, our two Gatwick offices have moved from Horley to one larger combined office in Griffin House in the centre of Crawley, following on from the recent merger with CLB Gatwick.
Clive Stevens – Executive Chairman of Kreston Reeves commented; “We are able to offer a regional alternative to the larger firms in the town. We can deliver a full service and range of skills to our clients from owner managed businesses and entrepreneurs, private clients, charities and financial services. On day one in the new office we bring 30 posts and a turnover of £2.2m to the area, we are looking to grow this over the next 12 months to £3m and a five year vision of doubling the size of the office. We have already recruited two graduate trainees to start with us from day one”.
The Crawley office currently has eight partners including Clive Stevens, Paul Roe, Shirley Smith, John Pannett, Allan Pinner, Martin Neve, Farouk Durrani, and James Peach. Each of the partners brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the offering of Kreston Reeves Gatwick.
Paul Roe – President of Crawley & Gatwick Chamber of Commerce is one of the eight partners and responsible for Business Services for Kreston Reeves. Paul who has lived in the area all his life, is an active and well known member of the local business community, has been an intrinsic part of the move to the centre of Crawley.
“I am delighted with the move, the location is excellent and easily accessible for our staff, clients and other professionals in the area. The excellent transport links to the South Coast and London making it easier for our clients and staff to attend meetings. Even better we have an international airport on the doorstep,” further added Paul Roe.
Clive Stevens added “A major benefit to our clients and the region will be our international footprint where, through our 30 year membership of Kreston International we have built strong relationships with like minded English speaking accountants across the world. This enables us to offer clients a broad range of unique and specialist advice that other mid-sized firms are unable to deliver. As a Kreston Board member (and former Chairman) for the past 15 years I’m confident that Crawley is exactly the right place for Kreston Reeves to be as we grow our international reach for the benefit of current and future clients”.
