Optimum Professional Services in management buyout

by Iain Mason

Published on 24th October 2018

Our groundbreaking professional services firm has been the subject of a management buyout.

The company has been acquired by chief executive Richard Mathews from parent company RFS Holdings.

Optimum was set up in September last year, following the merger of RFS-owned Regulatory Accounting and law firm Hoffman Briggs.

The MBO marks the final stage in the creation process of a standalone professional services company, serving the SME and owner managed business market which predominates the Swindon business scene.

“The management buyout puts Optimum in an excellent position to support SMEs and owner managed businesses,” say Richard. “Ours was the first company in the area offering both legal and accountancy services, which gives not only convenience to our clients but is more cost-effective, as everything they need is under one roof.”

Our legal team, headed by solicitor Iain Mason, deal in all areas of property law, wills and probate. The accountancy team, headed by account directors Jon Lacey and Michael Blaken, offer business development, accountancy, payroll and bookkeeping.

If you run an owner managed business or SME please get in touch to see how we can help.
