A chartered accountancy company with an office in Morpeth was among the winners at the North East Accountancy Awards.

Tait Walker received the Independent Firm of the Year and Corporate Finance Deal of the Year accolades during the ceremony at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead.

The business was recognised by the judging panel for its industry-leading opportunities, innovation and strength of communication, as well as its excellence and dedication to staff well-being and teamwork across all divisions.

Managing partner Andrew Moorby said: “We are thrilled with the recognition this award brings.

“As one of the largest independent accountancy practices in the region, we take an integrated approach in managing all aspects of our clients’ personal and business finances, in which each department works closely with the other, and investing in further employment facilitates this greatly.

“We’re delighted with how 2014 has gone for us so far. We are recruiting steadily and incorporating new services into our extensive offering, so exciting times lie ahead for the firm.”

The Corporate Finance Deal of the Year award congratulated the firm’s corporate finance team for its work carried out with Winn Solicitors – a deal that saw Tait Walker help one of the region’s most successful solicitors firms to secure national expansion.

The company employs over 140 staff across three offices in Newcastle, Morpeth and Tees Valley. It is currently hosting a series of business summits, for more information, visit
