Landwood Group is expanding its operation with the opening of a new office in Yorkshire.
The office, which is located on Queen Street, will be led by director Richard Parkinson, who has previously spent over a decade in the Leeds market.
Landwood provides due diligence advice and valuations for both lending purposes and for corporate restructuring and insolvency. Uniquely Landwood also offers an operational review of businesses, which looks at commercial and operational due diligence, and turnaround consultancy.
The Manchester-based business, which also has offices in Birmingham and London, was established in 2008 by Parkinson and Mark Bailey. The company provides expert advice on property, plant and machinery and business assets.
Says Mr Parkinson: “Our expanding workload in Yorkshire, where we have worked on a number of different projects in recent months, means that setting up a permanent base in Leeds is common sense. This development is perfect for the business because it means we now have an excellent geographical spread. It’s a real opportunity for the Landwood brand to flourish and grow.”
“Our strategy is to continue to develop Landwood as a truly national operation and the opening of our Leeds office is an important milestone in our development. It will allow us to grow in a region where we have already established a firm foothold. Our reputation has given us the chance to build a wide and varied client base that includes a wide range of insolvency practitioners, banks and specialist lenders.
“Personally, it’s great to be returning back over the Pennines. Before moving to Manchester I spent around 14 years working in Leeds and I’m looking forward to spearheading the team from Queen Street.”
