Russell Brennan Keane has been ranked ninth largest national firm in a nationwide accountancy survey. The Athlone-based company moved up from 10th to 9th largest firm in the annual independent Finance Magazine Accountancy Survey. ‘We are particularly proud of these results as they endorse the ambitious growth and development targets that we have set ourselves, particularly over the last year. Our growth can be attributed mainly to existing clients referring us to friends and peers. We aim to provide a quality based partnership with our clients and the many referrals from existing clients is a wonderful affirmation from them that we are succeeding in giving them that quality service,’ said Liam Rattigan, Chief Executive of Russell Brennan Keane. With an increased client base, fee income has increased from €13 million to €16.5 million. This achievement follows significant investment in recruiting experienced individuals, many who have relocated from the larger firms and from industry to Dublin. Russell Brennan Keane is an established chartered accountancy firm, with approximately 200 employees based in offices in Athlone, Dublin and Roscommon. Established in 1958, the firm offers a comprehensive nationwide service, and has grown rapidly over the last decade by placing particular emphasis on quality business and tax services for a wide range of clients. Russell Brennan Keane is the only regional accountancy practice ranked in the top ten Irish accountancy firms.
