M Wasley Chapman & Co now employs around 40 people across the region and chose to establish its latest office in UK Steel Enterprise’s Innovation Centre on the Kirkleatham Business Park.
This move has since brought the company yet more new business as six of the other tenants based at the centre are now their clients.
Partner Philip Cuthbert said: “We wanted to be able to provide advice and support on the ground to our Redcar clients.
“We are already recruiting again as we expect further expansion this year. We are very committed to training too and each of our offices usually has at least two trainees.”
M Wasley Chapman provides financial advice and works closely with clients from start-up businesses and sole traders to SMEs and major corporate companies.
Initially established in Whitby in 1918, it also has offices in Middlesbrough, Scarborough, Guisborough and Saltburn.
After two years as an accountant and auditor in Sydney, Australia, and six years in corporate roles in the city, Philip Cuthbert returned to his native North East and joined M Wasley Chapman.
He said: “I came back to Teesside due to my passion for the area and I think our faith in the North East and Yorkshire is well-founded as the rising demand for our services demonstrates a good level of business activity.
“We work with all sizes of business, but smaller companies in particular, who perhaps don’t have an in-house finance director often need the expertise that we can bring to their team.
"The Innovation Centre has proved to be a great choice with all the space, facilities and parking we need as well as a supportive UK Steel Enterprise team on hand.”
