Leicester based Westerby Group has good cause to celebrate as both divisions of their business pass milestone anniversaries.
The original arm to the business, Westerby Investment Management, reached an impressive 30 years in business whilst Westerby Trustee Services are celebrating their 20th anniversary. All aspects of the group continue to thrive, with significant growth in combined turnover (50%+), profit (300%+) and employee numbers (50%+) over the last 3 years.
Steve Harvey is the Managing Director for Westerby Group and joined in 2012.
“I’ve been in the industry for 36 years and with Westerby Group for the past five. It’s a huge achievement to have grown so much in size over such a short space of time. Each and every year the company reinvents itself in light of current compliance, politics, economic conditions and industry trends. These constant challenges in the industry actually allow us to differentiate ourselves by staying ahead of the game, where we need to be.”
The company is now looking to expand further, as they consider developing a presence in London as well as growing their teams in Leicester.
Further to their all-round success, Westerby Group also pride themselves on their employee retention which is of great importance to the company. Steve puts their great staff retention down to the culture of the business.
“We have really flexible working conditions and we’re very transparent as an organisation. We highly value our team and invest in them through professional qualifications, appraisals, staff events and frequent team meetings. We strive to be highly communicative. We are very lucky but then we also work incredibly hard on our team culture.”
With such an impressive history, Westerby Group can quite rightly position themselves as being the one of the leading independent financial advisers and provider of bespoke pension schemes in the East Midlands.
