Shaw Gibbs has strengthened its international credentials by joining DFK International, the worldwide association of independent accounting firms and business advisers. The move ensures the international support which will better enable the firm to deal with the increasing number of international businesses showing an interest in establishing themselves in the Thames Valley.
Peter O’Connell, Shaw Gibbs managing director, said: “Joining this respected independent global association will provide the resources we need to advise firms looking to establish overseas offices. Moreover, our being part of a recognised accountancy association will encourage international businesses to come to us when they are looking to invest in the UK.”
Bob Law, chairman of the DFK UK and Ireland national group within DFK International, added: “Oxford had been identified as an important strategic location for DFK UK and Ireland to have representation, so we are delighted to have found such a resourceful and professional firm. Shaw Gibbs will undoubtedly strengthen our ability to serve the needs of our international clients.”
Shaw Gibbs becomes the first DFK International member to be based in Oxford.
