A Warwickshire business park is celebrating a major milestone by welcoming its 100th occupier.
The number of organisations based at Stoneleigh Park has almost doubled since LaSalle Investment Management took responsibility for the estate in December 2010.
Under a 150-year lease from the Royal Agricultural Society of England, LaSalle committed to investing £50 million in a 15-year masterplan to revitalise the park into a leading centre for rural sciences, sustainability, innovation and business.
The Rural Innovation Centre, which opened in 2013 as a hub for small and start-up businesses, has been a significant contributor to the increase in occupiers.
Tisski, a Microsoft partner providing front and back office business software solutions, became the site’s 100th tenant when it moved into Chamberlain House.
Founded by CEO Anna Assassa in 2011, Tisski relocated to Stoneleigh Park in its most successful year, which included Anna winning an Entrepreneur of the Year regional title in the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
Anna said: “We doubled in size in 2017 and hope to achieve that again this year. We work predominantly with public sector organisations and financial services and are looking to extend further into the NHS and launch a new SME offering.
“We have grown to a team of 45, with support staff based here and consultants out in the field. Stoneleigh Park is a beautiful business park in a good central location.”
Colin Hooper, Estates Director at Stoneleigh Park, said the record number of businesses and employees, which is in the region of 1,300, demonstrated growth and commitment to the site.
“We are delighted to welcome Tisski as our 100th occupier.
“Stoneleigh Park is home to several major national organisations, including the National Farmers’ Union and Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, which sit alongside smaller, local businesses giving the estate a unique mix.”
