Apiary-backed Shaw Gibbs continues impressive roll-up

We are delighted to share that Shaw Gibbs has completed its sixth bolt-on in the past year with the acquisition of Martin and Company, a prominent accountancy and tax advisory practice with offices in Hampshire and Oxfordshire.

With a shared commitment to delivering exceptional client service, the merger between Martin and Company and Shaw Gibbs not only creates a formidable force in the accounting and tax advisory industry, but brings in additional expertise in the farming and agricultural sector, landed estates and private client spaces.

“We are thrilled to welcome Martin and Company to the Shaw Gibbs family,” said Managing Partner, Peter O’Connell. “Their reputation for excellence and commitment to client success perfectly complement our values and mission. Together, we will continue to deliver the high-quality services and innovative solutions our clients expect, while expanding our reach to better serve businesses, estates and individuals throughout the region.”

“We are delighted to support Peter and the Shaw Gibbs team as they continue to expand at a rapid rate,” said Chris Heawood, Investment Director at Apiary Capital. “We look forward to continuing to support the company as it solidifies its position as a trusted advisor in the region.”

The acquisition of Martin and Company is the sixth since Apiary Capital invested in Shaw Gibbs in November 2022 to support the management team’s ambitious buy-and-build strategy. The business has grown significantly from around 100 people to over 400 based across 10 offices in central and southern England.
