Lang Bennetts opens in Falmouth

Truro-based accountant and business adviser Lang Bennetts has announced its first expansion out of the city with the opening of a harbourside office at Greenbank Quay, Falmouth.

The expansion has been prompted by a number of recent retirements in Falmouth’s accounting fraternity and the firm’s recognition of the town as a vibrant growth area for business.

The new office is being managed by Loreen Shepherd, assisted by Gina Wilkes, both of whom have moved from Briants, another Falmouth accountancy firm.

Lang Bennetts partner Colin Truscott commented: “Falmouth has lost a number of eminent accountants in recent years through retirement and, sadly, bereavement.

“Together with the town’s acknowledged potential for substantial business growth, we believe there is effectively a gap in the market here and confidently anticipate raising our staffing level at Falmouth to around five within the next 12 to 18 months.”
