Nexia Australia Sydney today announced that it would merge with Hill Rogers from 1 July, with all 50 directors and staff set to join the network.
Hill Rogers, which will rebrand as Nexia, will now be part of the network’s seven firms throughout the country as well as Nexia International, which has 710 offices in 122 countries.
Nexia managing director Paul Lenton said the merger comes as Nexia International targets a top 10 position in all major commercial centres.
“Both the directors of Nexia Australia Sydney and Hill Rogers are focused on client care and the delivery of friendly, personalised service. The merger will create a firm with a sustainable future and a culture that supports personal growth, purpose, meaning and measurable outcomes,” Mr Lenton said.
“The merger will give Hill Rogers’s staff significant development opportunities through our global network and provide additional specialised skills to both firms’ existing clients.
“They will benefit from accessing a better-resourced, broader-skilled and more diverse accounting and advisory firm.”
Hill Rogers executive chair John Wilcox said Nexia Australia Sydney was a natural fit for the firm because of its collegiate culture and approach to client service.
“It was very clear from our first meeting, Nexia Australia Sydney embraces our aspirations and are keen to work with us on existing significant projects to improve expected success,” Mr Wilcox said.
“Our clients will also be able to access the substantial global network that is Nexia International and the benefits that this alliance brings.
“Hill Rogers is a well respected, client-focused, professional CBD chartered accountancy and advisory firm with a great reputation, which, after our merger, will continue with Nexia Australia Sydney.”
