I’m determined to create opportunity for everyone in order to continue to build and develop successful diverse teams.”

Iwan Griffiths, commented;

“I have had seven fantastic years as North West Regional Leader and Manchester Office Senior Partner and feel honoured to have been able to work with such a great team of people. During which time we have transformed our business in the North West and have grown from 680 people to now over 1200.  Our new office has changed how we work and has become the envy of everyone inside of the firm and many outside and has created another exciting development in our growth story.”

Bringing in people with different backgrounds and experience will ensure we continue to be able to solve important problems and respond to our clients’ needs.”
