Expanding East Lothian accountants Cameron & Co. celebrate their first year in the heart of Haddington
25th October 2018
October marks a milestone for independent East Lothian-based accountancy firm, Cameron & Co. The rapidly-expanding company are not only celebrating their first year in their offices in the heart of Haddington, they’re also officially launching a new look and website.
As the firm’s founder, Christa Cameron, explains they have come a long way, “when I started out in 2006, the business was called C A Cameron ACA, and it was just me working from my spare room; I had one client, but I was determined to grow the business.
And grow the business Christa did. By 2010, having outgrown her home office, Christa opened a small office in Haddington, just seven years later the rapidly expanding company had outgrown that space, prompting a move to larger premises in Court Street, Haddington in 2017.
The change of name to Cameron & Co Chartered Accountants also reflects just how far the firm – which now employs five people, as well as Christa herself – has come.
It’s not only her own business that Christa has grown over the years; thanks to the wide range of accountancy services and business support she and her team provide to clients across the Borders – and beyond – Christa has helped several businesses go from ambitious start-ups to established SMEs.
The team offer more than book-keeping and traditional accountancy services, “I like to think that we don’t just work for our clients, we work with them, so that when they’re ready for the next stage of their business journey we can work together to indentify opportunities, create viable plans and support them as they grow” says Christa. It’s an approach that seems to be benefiting everyone involved, as Cameron & Co.’s ever-growing list of satisfied customers demonstrates. “It’s such a great feeling to not only work with our clients on the day-to-day things like tax, VAT and payroll, but to get to know them and their businesses, and to help them really explore their options and understand what’s possible.
Cameron & Co celebrated their rebranding and the anniversary of the move to their Court Street premises with a drinks reception on 11 October, where guests were able to meet Christa and her team, and enjoy an exhibition of work by local artist, Lucy Parsons.
