Multi-disciplinary business advisory firm Greenaway Scott Group has appointed a new head of its Swansea office, topping off a year of “unprecedented” growth.
Leanne Thomas, who is an associate director within the firm, has been appointed to oversee the office, lead the expanding team and continue to drive growth going forwards.
Miss Thomas has been integral to the success of the firm’s Swansea office since she joined in 2017. She is the lead advisor for many of the office’s West Wales based clients, including internationally renowned medical advisory company The Bevan Commission, and has completed numerous lucrative investment rounds and high value corporate transactions.
Since opening its Swansea office at the start of 2017, the Group, which offers bespoke corporate, commercial, employment and intellectual property advice together with corporate finance expertise provided by Group member Verde Corporate Finance has grown both its client base and team significantly.
In recent months, the Swansea team has welcomed five new recruits, taking the Group’s headcount up to over 40, and the Group has represented some of West Wales’ most innovative and growing companies.
This includes marine energy company Bombora Wave Power supporting the development of its revolutionary mWave technology, using its expertise to advise cutting-edge medical technology company Magstim, and continuing to be retained by Trade Centre Wales for the purposes of facilitating dealer/broker agreements and servicing all HR requirements.
On the office’s continued growth and her promotion, Miss Thomas said she was “delighted” to have been appointed and looks forward to leading her team on to even greater success this year.
She said: “I am extremely proud to be heading up the Swansea office and I am keen to continue to drive our strategic plan of growing and strengthening the Greenaway Scott Group.
“The West Wales office that we are building has gone from strength to strength over the past year, and relationships with our clients and businesses in the region continue to grow. The reputation of the Greenaway Scott Group is second to none and has been instrumental in our success, both in terms of acquiring new clients and recruiting talented staff.
“We have welcomed some exceptional clients from the West Wales area and numbers continue to grow.
“Thanks to the unprecedented success we’ve enjoyed this year, Greenaway Scott Group is actively considering other locations for further expansion, so watch this space. Our clients have enjoyed the synergies we can offer by working alongside Verde on a Group-wide basis and, as the only law firm in Wales which can operate as an Alternative Business Structure, we are assessing other business sectors for further diversification of our offering.
“It’s certainly a very exciting time to be part of the Greenaway Scott Group.”
