Through the transaction, Accountor will strengthen its position as the leading financial management service provider in the Nordics as well as improve its service capability in Sweden.
“For several years now, we have invested heavily in developing our customer-oriented service processes as well as in the modern technology and automation that support our processes. With our new way of working, we offer more advanced and high-quality services to our customers in all our countries,” says Niklas Sonkin, Accountor’s President and CEO.
In addition, Accountor can offer West-Pool's customers wider range or services, such as tax consultation and other advisory services.
“At West-Pool, we have just started our digital journey. With Accountor, we get completely different opportunities for digitization and good platforms that benefit the collaboration between us and our customers. I believe that we can contribute with thoughts and ideas, especially on how we work with smaller assignments. I believe that together we can become something extraordinary. This also provides a greater opportunity for employees to further develop themselves. I want the best for the employees and the customers”, says Lisa Illiminsky, West-Pool AB’s Managing Director.
One of Accountor’s strategic targets in Sweden is to be able to serve small and medium-sized companies even better. West-Pool AB complements Accountor's current expertise, especially in this respect.
“It feels good to get on board professional consultants who work close to the customer. West-Pool is a company with a culture we want to embrace. I believe that by mixing our cultures we will become stronger and better as a company,” says Magnus Högvall, Managing Director of Accountor Sweden.
