I have known Diane for over 20 years and she has a great reputation for reliability and customer service, qualities which fit well with our service standards. We are a modern day business with old-fashioned values and one of the largest independent accountancy firms in the Tees Valley.
Whilst technology is a great asset to our business, we don’t plan on losing sight of the personal touch – clients know that they’re in safe hands with Davies Tracey and that trust is built by creating long-lasting client relationships. We have had connections with some clients for over 100 years and are working with 3rd or 4th generations of local businesses – our roots go back this far through acquisition of Gilchrist Tash in 2012, who were established in the 1870’s. Our business ethos and high quality customer service approach remains consistent – this is where Diane will make a great contribution to our clients”.
Davies Tracey was established in 2002 by Craig Davies and Ian Tracey and has grown organically since then and also through acquisition.
