Bigelow & Co. acquired by UHY LLP

Manchester and Portsmouth-based accounting firm to expand parent company's Northeast presence

UHY LLP — a licensed CPA firm — today announced that they will expand their presence in the Northeast with the acquisition of the certified public accounting firm Bigelow & Company in Manchester and Portsmouth. UHY employs over 1,600 individuals in 34 U.S. offices, with nine locations in New York and Connecticut. With the new merger, Bigelow will offer a wider array of services and expertise to their clients in New Hampshire.

Marie McKay will continue as managing partner of the Manchester and Portsmouth offices, and all 27 Bigelow employees will be employed by UHY.

“As one of the fastest growing accounting firms in the U.S., the choice to join UHY was very clear to us, ” said McKay. “To be a part of UHY will mean that we can continue the long-term relationships we’ve already established in New Hampshire but now we’ll have access to additional services and provide a more holistic approach to client service. We are also looking forward to leveraging UHY’s sophisticated support system for operations, finance, human resources, information technology and marketing.”

“As we looked to enter the New Hampshire market we wanted to continue our successful strategy of finding a local firm, providing quality service, with a strong brand and a management team that was significantly active in the community. Bigelow & Company, under Marie McKay’s leadership was an obvious choice,” said Michael Mahoney, Northeast region managing director for UHY.

“I am extremely excited to partner with Marie to grow the platform she has already built, to establish UHY as the ‘go to’ accounting firm for assisting family-owned, closely held businesses and individuals in the state of New Hampshire.”
