Kingston Smith are delighted to share the news that, from 9 September 2019, they are changing their name to Moore Kingston Smith.
The new name reflects Kingston Smith’s membership of the Moore Stephens International network, which is rebranding to become known as Moore on 9 September.
Adding Moore to their name will enhance their international presence and reach while retaining their heritage and brand recognition. Importantly, Kingston Smith is remaining independent and there will be no difference to the day-to-day service clients receive.
Having joined the Moore Stephens global advisory and accounting network in May this year, Kingston Smith has been delighted to offer enhanced support to clients via the network, particularly those requiring support around the world.
The Moore Global network, as it will shortly be known, is one of the world’s major accounting and consulting networks, covering over 600 locations in 112 countries, with over 30,000 people and combined fees of more than US $3.06 billion.
Jonathan Seymour, Partner, Heathrow commented: “Kingston Smith joined the global advisory and accounting network in May 2019, enhancing our offering to clients at an international level, and strengthening the development and growth opportunities of our firm and our people. Of course, we are still the same local practice providing advice and support to our clients; but the network enhances our international reach for businesses looking for that support.”
Maureen Penfold, Managing Partner of Moore Kingston Smith, commented: “Helping our clients thrive has always been central to Kingston Smith’s identity and purpose. Being internationally recognised as the London firm of the Moore Global network will position us to provide even greater support to our clients in reaching their global aspirations.”
She continued: “Our heritage and independence is important to us as a partnership, as it is to our clients and our people. Our commitment to our core values, which place clients at the centre of everything we do, is shared by the Moore network, whose vision is to become the most respected accounting network in the world.
“The natural alignment between our brands has made adding the Moore name to Kingston Smith a natural next step in our journey – one which will further strengthen our international presence and reach.”
Jonathan added: “I know that the whole team at Heathrow is keen to make use of our new network to continue to support our clients’ growth and development.”
