Our Journey

Hillyer McKeown’s vision for growth

Our journey on the current path began in 2015 with the launch of the 8 year plan. This involved setting growth targets such as attracting new talent, increasing profitability and realising key office moves in both Chester and Liverpool. Each year important milestones are reached and celebrated within in the business.

The History of Hillyer McKeown in a nutshell
The firm began in 1958 as Charles Roberts & Co. Phil Jones joined the firm a few years later from Cornish Forfar, a Liverpool firm. As the years progressed the firm underwent many changes, becoming Hillyer McKeown in 1998 following a merger with the Heswall firm of Hilton Blyth Porteous & Co.

More recently, Hillyer McKeown adjusted to reflect the changing marketplace putting client service at the centre of its activities.
