Business advisory firm Quantuma has revealed plans to double the headcount of its North West team in the next two years.
The company has had operations in Manchester since 2019 and will expand to 40 by the end of 2024.
Quantuma has been part of the K3 Capital Group – the AIM-listed multi-disciplinary professional services group – since the two merged in August 2020.
The Manchester team works alongside Bolton-based KBS Corporate and the wider group to provide additional complementary advisory expertise, including transactional tax and debt advisory work, as well as R&D tax credits.
Quantuma’s growth in the North West was boosted by the acquisition of Manchester-based insolvency and advisory specialist, Bell Advisory in 2020.
The North West team relocated to a new office at the 196 Deansgate development in December.
Established in 2013 by Carl Jackson, Quantuma has 23 UK and international offices.
Managing director Robert Parry, who also heads up the firm’s North West team, said: “We made the decision to move into Manchester in 2019 to fulfil the growing need for high-quality advisory services across the region.
“Since then, we have grown to become one of the most active teams in the North West, working on an impressive roster of significant and complex cases.
“As demand for our services continues to grow and the region faces pressures of rebuilding the post-pandemic economy, our plans to double our headcount over the next two years will mean that we can support more businesses than ever.”
Chief executive Carl Jackson added: “What the team have achieved in the two years since it arrived in the North West is exceptional.
“Led by some of the best in the industry, we have become a leading advisor to businesses across the region and I look forward to seeing what more the team can achieve in the future.”
