Bowman Gilfillan Africa Group today announced that from 1 September 2016 it will operate across Africa under one brand name: Bowmans.
Chairman and Senior Partner, Rob Legh, says, “This is a natural step forward for us. For some time, we have seen an increasing level of corporate and public sector activity across the continent. The model we chose to address this has involved establishing offices in key jurisdictions and working in a fully integrated way to deliver a one-stop service to our clients. However, while our offices are integrated, our brand has not reflected this until now.”
I am pleased to announce that from today our firm will be operating across Africa under one brand name: Bowmans.
Bowmans reflects our ‘one firm’ ethos which is demonstrated in our historical ability to provide seamless advice to our clients across Africa, through a single point of contact. While our offices are extensively integrated, our brand has not reflected this until now.
