BUSINESS support consultancy Walsh Taylor, which is headquartered in Leeds, has expanded its geographical coverage with the opening of offices in Harrogate and Middlesbrough.
Walsh Taylor was founded in 2008 and advises businesses and individuals facing financial problems. The two new offices form part of a growth strategy that it says will lead to job creation across Yorkshire and the North East. The business previously had one office, its Leeds headquarters.
The company currently employs 20 people and expects to turn over £2.8m this year.
Managing director Mary Taylor said: “These new premises will ensure we have a full-time service available for existing and new clients who need our support. We envisage the creation of a number of new jobs in 2013 as part of an ongoing growth strategy.
“In today’s testing economic climate a growing number of individuals and businesses are seeking assistance in the absence of a properly functioning banking sector and we work closely with the likes of accountants and a variety of financial institutions to ensure that over 90 per cent stay solvent, saving jobs in the process.”
The Harrogate office is headed up by Ian Gostellow, a recently appointed director of the firm with Stewart Dobson taking charge of the Teesside presence. Ms Taylor said: “Ian has more than 25 years of experience in insolvency and Stewart is a renowned expert in the Teesside area. Both bring a high level of expertise and professionalism to Walsh Taylor as well as established networks.”
