Chartered Accountants and Financial Services firm Armstrong Watson is developing the support it is able to offer clients in west Cumbria through expansion and significant investment in its Workington office, which is based at the Lillyhall Business Centre. The firm has made the decision to invest resources into the region which represents an area of growth for Armstrong Watson. Through the investment, Armstrong Watson will be able to develop new relationships with local businesses, supporting and advising companies with a strong and experienced team who have their roots on Cumbria’s west coast.
Richard Askew will be heading up the team at Lillyhall as Corporate Director. Richard was born and raised in west Cumbria and has been supporting clients from Lillyhall on a part time basis for the last two years. After working from the Penrith office for the past four years he will now be moving to Lillyhall on a permanent basis, providing advice to a wide range of clients.
Another team member joining the Lillyhall office will be Sarah Bell, who will work alongside the team currently in place including Mary Bragg, and Neil Davis will continue providing independent financial advice, supported by Emma Symonds.
This represents significant investment into the west coast business community by Armstrong Watson. The firm is focussed on providing a range of services that is typical of larger accountancy practices, delivered to businesses by individuals who can provide a much more personal, bespoke service.
Paul Dickson, Managing Partner at Armstrong Watson said ‘We have decided to put significant investment into the west coast as we feel there are many businesses in the region that could benefit from the broad range of services we are able to offer. Our increased strength and presence will mean that we’re able to support many more clients and we’re looking forward to developing our business relationships in the region.’
