DJH Mitten Clarke acquires DTE Business Advisers

Today, European tech investor Tenzing announced that DJH Mitten Clarke has acquired Bury’s largest independent accountancy firm, DTE Business Advisers. The latest partnership is the UK Top 50 accountancy group’s sixth acquisition of the year, and with ten offices across the North-West, Midlands and Yorkshire, it firmly positions DJH Mitten Clarke as a powerhouse in the accountancy industry.

DJH Mitten Clarke’s CEO, Scott Heath, commented, “Our partnership with DTE Business Advisers is yet another significant milestone in building our business through culturally aligned partnerships and our ongoing commitment to enhancing our business advice to the SME market.”

Scott continued, “With offices in Manchester City Centre and Altrincham, DTE’s location at the heart of the Bury business community was a natural move and further strengthens our foothold in Greater Manchester. The collaboration will also see DTE’s dedicated corporate finance team support in the development of the Group’s transactional services, enhancing the support we offer.”

Directors Fiona O’Loughlin, George Lovell, Matt Beckley, Richard Bell, and Richard Taylor will continue to lead the Bury team.

Richard Taylor, Director at DTE Business Advisers, expressed his excitement about the partnership, “We are extremely excited about our partnership with DJH Mitten Clarke and the opportunities it will create for both our team and our clients. With over 80 years of history, we are proud of our achievements, and this partnership will accelerate our ambitious plans for the future.

“The partnership is not just about expanding our services; it’s also a commitment to the growth and wellbeing of our team. Through increased investment in training, development, recruitment, and wellbeing programmes, we aim to create the very best environment for our team to deliver an even more exceptional service to our clients.”

Mike Reynolds, Investment Lead at Tenzing, added: “We believe that the strategic partnership between DJH Mitten Clarke and DTE Business Advisers is a testament to the strength of collaborations in the ever-evolving landscape of the accountancy industry. This acquisition not only reinforces the position of DJH Mitten Clarke as a formidable player in the market but also signifies a commitment to innovation, growth, and client excellence.”

The news follows the announcements earlier in 2023 of Leeds’ Novis & Co, Nantwich’s Lyon Griffiths, Altrincham’s Haines Watts, Huddersfield’s Revell Ward, and specialist dental accountants Minford Dental joining the Group.

Tenzing, demonstrating its commitment to supporting its portfolio companies, provided an Acquisitions Director to assist DJH Mitten Clarke with this acquisition. The firm has actively supported its portfolio companies in completing 14 acquisitions within the last 12 months.
