Crowe Horwath Subsumes Newmarket
Newmarket Partnership has joined Crowe Horwath's network of independent accountancy and advisory firms. The firm was founded 25 years ago by Gerry O'Reilly and the late David Manley.
O'Reilly joins Crowe Horwath as partner, while Michael O Scathaill and Nigel Kavanagh also joined from Newmarket. Crowe Horwath is one of the top ten global networks of independent accounting and advisory service firms and employs 150 people in Ireland. It has clients across all sectors including hotels, the film industry, media and not-for-profits.
Speaking about the move, Brian Conroy, managing partner of Crowe Horwath, says: “We are delighted to welcome Gerry and his team and the expertise and opportunities that they bring to Crowe Horwath. Gerry joins our established corporate finance team, where he will look after mergers and acquisitions. His recent experience of managing the McCambridges' management buyout, among many other mergers and acquisitions while at Newmarket, is a natural fit in meeting the needs for our growth-oriented owner-managed clients.”
Says Gerry O'Reilly: “Newmarket has a wealth of dynamic, privately-owned businesses with whom Michael, Nigel and I will continue to work at Crowe Horwath.”
O'Reilly co-founded Newmarket in 1979 with a focus on the SME sector and its clients are predominately owner-managed businesses. He is a non-executive director of South Dublin Chamber, Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport and of St. Ultan's Care Board. He is also a sponsor of the David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Awards. (June 2014)
