Looking for the Family Business of the Year

Crowe Clark Whitehill is proud to sponsor the Family Business of the Year award to recognise and celebrate the contribution that family businesses make to the economy.

At Crowe, we support and advise many family businesses across the Black Country, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and the wider Midlands, offering accountancy, tax and advisory services.

We work with family businesses to build something valuable, substantial, and enduring. Close working relationships are the cornerstone of our effective service delivery. 

We take the time to understand you and your business, working in partnership with you to support your goals and ambitions. We seek to help you make smart decisions that bring lasting value.

We are proud of our specialist support that helps you to focus on developing the future leaders of your business, on bringing through the next generation and helping those family members who are not in the business. Growth and succession strategies are key to the future success of any company, but none more so than the family-owned and run business.

We have global reach through our partners across Crowe Horwath International, ranked as the eighth largest global accounting network, consisting of more than 200 independent accounting and advisory firms in close to 130 countries around the world.

From our Midlands office in Oldbury, with support from our national and international firm, we can help you grow in the UK and reach out globally to take advantage of trading opportunities that exist in your sector and marketplace.

Our aim is to become long-term trusted advisors to the family businesses with whom we work. Everything about us: our structure, our training programmes, our working life, and our personal and professional success criteria, is driven by this goal.

We are trusted by thousands of clients for our head for figures, our specialist advice and our readiness to go the extra mile to give our clients success.

Johnathan Dudley, Midlands Managing Partner says “Family businesses are key to us, locally, nationally and internationally. We have partners working with family businesses of all sizes around the world and that gives us regular insight into topical issues and solutions as they arise. As owner managers ourselves, (with many of us having family connections with family businesses too), we really empathise family businesses, their importance to the economy and the unique issues that need to be met and overcome to make sure that they are sustained successes.”

Rob Gunn, Tax Partner at Crowe says “Working with family businesses can be challenging at times, every family has its own nuances, but it is incredibly rewarding when you are able to help the family and business move forward to achieve its goals. As advisors, we occupy a very privileged position and it is great to see the drive, ambition, innovation and talent that epitomise the best family businesses from that perspective particularly when you can use your own skills and those of the wider Crowe team to make a positive difference.”
