There will be eight directors and more than 80 staff and Cheetham will relocate from Quarriers village in Renfrewshire to Aitken’s offices in Glasgow.
Adrienne Airlie, chief executive of Martin Aitken & Co said: “I’m delighted that David and the team from Cheetham & Co have joined us.
“They share our ethos of building close, mutually beneficial relationships with clients and providing the highest standards of client service. The merger is a good fit for both firms and is another good step forward in our continued growth and expansion.”
Mr Cheetham said the two firms have a great deal of common ground in terms of strategy and culture.
“The merged firm will further strengthen our offering to the former Cheetham & Co clients,” he said.
Mr Cheetham established the business in 1998 and operated as a sole practitioner employing three chartered accountants including himself, a senior tax associate and support staff servicing a mixed portfolio of SME and owner-managed business clients predominantly in the Glasgow & Renfrewshire area.
