Flying start to the New Year

Published: January 4, 2017

We’re celebrating a flying start to the New Year with a series of new business wins with some of the world’s biggest and most prestigious corporations.

Microsoft, GE Capital, Lexmark International and BUPA have all signed up to Southerns with deals worth in excess of seven figure sums. The new customers will join our existing blue-chip clients such as Carillion, Bunzl and of course we work with multiple universities throughout the UK.

Our CEO, Andy Kendall-Jones, believes this is only the start of a hugely significant year for the Group. “Six months into our financial year, we hit our target of a £45 million turnover,” he said. “So 2017 looks to be shaping up as a bumper year for the business.”

As part of this growth strategy, last year we made significant changes to our brand, further developing our unique, collaborative approach – which has paid dividends. The Group, following investment, now incorporates six brands located across Yorkshire, Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire, employs around 240 staff and is on target to reach a £200 million turnover by 2022.
