This month we are pleased to announce that we are celebrating our 40th year in business!
The practice was formed back in 1983 by Directors Lawrence Thompson and David Wright. Speaking of his fond memories, David Wright said: ‘Back then we were in King Street, Newcastle and though it seems like yesterday, I can’t imagine now a world and an office without computers. In fact that’s one of my earliest memories as a partner, buying our first 2 IBM Pc’s complete with floppy disks that cost more than 2 Pc’s cost today!’
Our first office in King Street was soon outgrown, leading to a relocation to Ebenezer House in the year 2000. Fast forward to today, and we now have eight directors, expanded to two other offices in Hale and Leek, and we employ over 100 staff members with further growth anticipated.
Richard Thompson added, ‘One of my biggest achievements has certainly been taking over from my father, becoming an accountant was a dream I had from a young age and continuing my father’s legacy is a great accomplishment of mine. Of course, we would not be where we are today without the support of our amazing team and loyal clients, so a big thank you to them!’
