New partner first step towards seamless BHP offer

22nd October 2020

Award-winning Yorkshire and Derbyshire accountancy firm BHP has its sights set on further growth of its “total accountancy solution” with the promotion of Chris Atkinson to Partner.

Chris joined the firm in 2017 to head up BHP Prosper – the cloud-accounting and outsourced finance function arm of BHP – as Managing Director following the acquisition of York-based accountants Atkinsons.

Chris said: “As a firm we’ve spent the last 3 years growing and developing our cloud advisory offering. Through continual investment in our team and technology, we now have the platform to scale our advisory services for owner managed business and SMEs and this will form the basis of our accounts and non-audit strategy moving forward.”

In his new role within the LLP he’ll be working more collaboratively with different service lines across the firm, such as tax and corporate finance, to deliver a total accounting solution for businesses across the region.

Chris said: “Since joining BHP three years ago I believe we have created a market leading outsourced finance team.  The combination of a strong team based in Yorkshire, together with the use of market leading cloud-based technologies, allows clients to benefit from high quality management information that will help them continue to prosper and grow.  I’m thrilled to be leading this team on the next stage of its growth and development.”

Hamish Morrison, Joint Managing Partner at BHP, added: “We’re always thinking about how we can develop our offering to provide the best possible service. Chris’s passion and determination to use new technology and find modern solutions is key to achieving that goal, and we can’t wait to see the next stage of advancements he makes in this new role.”
