Jonathan Langdon, who co-founded Milsted Langdon, has announced his retirement.
Established in 1988 by two graduates from the University of Bath, Milsted Langdon has grown to become an important leader in the region’s accountancy profession and is well-respected by its peers throughout the UK and overseas.
Originally starting out with just one office, the firm has grown under Jonathan’s guidance and now has offices in Bath, Bristol, Taunton, Yeovil and London, which are home to more than 200 members of staff.
While at its founding the firm mainly concentrated on the needs of local businesses, it has since diversified into many areas, such as insolvency and business restructuring, corporate finance and forensic accountancy and now works with an ever-expanding national and international client base.
Speaking about his time at the firm, Jonathan said: “A lot has changed since Milsted Langdon began, but our commitment to helping clients thrive remains the same.
“I feel very proud to have played a role in the growth of the practice, guiding it over the years to become such a well-regarded firm.
“I am also extremely proud of the opportunities we have provided to so many people to start and/or develop their careers.
“I should like to thank my clients, contacts and our staff for the support they have shown me over the years.”
Jonathan has also become a well-known figure and trusted adviser to many businesses across the South West, who have relied on his knowledge, hard work and dedication.
Tim Close, Chair of Milsted Langdon, said: “Jonathan has played an immensely influential role in the accountancy profession and within the local economy of the South West during his three decades at the helm of the firm.
“His commitment to people and their success has been incredible throughout his career and the firm that he has helped to create continues to play an important role locally, nationally and internationally.
“We are all very thankful for the opportunities that he has offered us and want to wish him the best as he begins his hard-earned retirement.”
