Professional services company picks Worcester for West Mid office expansion

Leonard Curtis

Professional services company Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group’s (LCBSG) has chosen Worcester as the location for its seventeenth in the UK – and it’s first in the West Midlands.

The firm says its new office will further strengthen the Leonard Curtis brand and service offering across the Midlands as a whole and complement services already provided from its Birmingham and Wolverhampton offices.

Operating from Foregate Street, in Worcester, the office is being led by Joph Young who has over 17 years’ experience of restructuring and recovery. Joph was born, educated and now lives in Worcester. He was most recently working for a national professional services firm in the City.

Overseeing the Group’s expansion to Worcester is Leonard Curtis Midlands’ Director Conrad Beighton. Since joining the company in 2012, Conrad has been responsible for directing the growth of the brand across the region.

He said: “The Midlands is a really strong hub for SMEs and start-ups, and we’ve long recognised the opportunities to develop our presence here and across the region supporting fledging firms to grow whilst creating new opportunities for ourselves as a business.

“From three regional offices we now have greater geographical reach to provide the levels of local support that our clients require. The Midlands is an expansive area and our growth and recruitment plans are ambitious. We’re very much looking forward to doing all we can to support Midlands’ SMEs and those who are advising them to realise their own potential.”

Group Director Daniel Booth said: “We’re delighted to now have a presence within such a thriving start-up and SME community here in Worcester and across the Midlands as a whole.”
