Brown Shipley supports Yorkshire entrepreneurs with new partnership

19 February 2018


We are pleased to announce a three year partnership deal with Connect Yorkshire, a not-for-profit organisation supporting businesses in the region.

Connect Yorkshire works with leading professionals to help entrepreneurs develop their proposition for greater success, nurture emerging talent and support growth through their sector specific expertise.

The new deal is an extension of our existing partnership with the South Yorkshire region and will see the business provide invaluable mentoring to local businesses across Yorkshire for the next three years.

The partnership demonstrates our commitment to supporting growth in Yorkshire by advising clients on their wealth planning and investment management needs.

We will be the sole wealth manager in the region to support members.

Commenting on the new partnership, Andrew Goodchild, Head of Brown Shipley’s Leeds Office, said: “We are pleased to announce that we are extending our partnership with Connect Yorkshire for the next three years.

“Supporting local entrepreneurs is a key priority for the business and our advisers are looking forward to sharing their knowledge and expertise to help promote further growth and success in this dynamic region.”

Nick Butler, Chief Executive Officer of Connect Yorkshire, said: "Connect Yorkshire are very pleased to welcome Brown Shipley as their Wealth Management Partner for both the West and North Yorkshire Group and the South Yorkshire Group. Brown Shipley started as a Partner last year with the South Yorkshire Group and it is great that they have now extended to both Groups.

“In addition they have agreed to be a Partner for 3 years which will run during the period that Connect Yorkshire will both increase the number of members and the number of Entrepreneurs in Residence."

Phil Harris, Client Director in our Leeds office, will be responsible for leading the partnership with Connect Yorkshire.
