EQ & Sumer Group

2024 is poised to be an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 20th anniversary and kick off our next phase of growth. Securing investment to fuel our expansion was a significant milestone, one that will not only support our vision for growth, but also create opportunities for our clients, our team, and our firm.

Craig Nicol, CEO, said

“We’re thrilled to partner with the Sumer Group. As part of the group, we gain enhanced access to skills, technology, and resources, bolstering our ability to build upon the great firm we’ve cultivated over the past two decades.

As the first Scottish representatives of the Sumer Group we are looking to become the accountancy firm of choice for growing businesses on the east coast of Scotland and beyond, and we will develop a people & culture strategy to be an employer of choice in our geographic areas.”

Everyone at EQ is looking forward to continuing to serve our clients with first-class service for many more years to come.
