Melbourne advisory firm BlueRock has added another acquisition to its accounting division in Brunswick-based Arthur Advisory, hot on the heels of its takeover of the dnm group last month.

Arthur Advisory director Ricky Jessop, pictured right, returns to BlueRock after running his own advisory business for five years specialising in e-commerce, digital and high-growth start-ups.

Previously an accountant at BlueRock, Mr Jessop said the partnership was an opportunity to use BlueRock’s multidisciplinary approach to help Arthur Advisory customers.

“BlueRock stands out in the market due to its unwavering commitment to innovation, excellence and customer quality,” he said.

“Their unique blend of cutting-edge technology, visionary leadership and a highly skilled team empowers advisers to deliver solutions that not only meet but exceed the expectations of their clients.”

BlueRock said Mr Jessop would integrate with its accounting team, including the recent additions from dnm group, and bolster its business advisory expertise.

BlueRock managing director of accounting Bevan McLeod, pictured left, said the merger was pivotal for the firm’s growth.

“As a great mentor to emerging and high-growth businesses, Ricky is well versed in working with founders to build successful businesses and brings with him a client base that aligns really well with our existing clients,” he said.

“The merger will also provide the opportunity to grow our business advisory service model and how that will integrate with other areas of our business”.

BlueRock said its Melbourne footprint had grown significantly across all products and services, with more than 320 staff, and it was now working to expand into other major cities supported by its acquisitions strategy and organic growth. Broadbent Financial was another recent acquisition.

BlueRock is an integrated advisory firm offering professional services for businesses and individuals, including accounting, wealth, finance, law and digital.
