“It has always been in our business plan to expand outside of Hull and East Yorkshire and as our client portfolio in York has grown, we have seized the opportunity – and can’t wait to welcome both our current clients and future clients to Blake House.”

The new office is in Blake Street, yards from the Davygate and Stonegate junction, and Betty’s Tea Rooms.

“We chose the location because it is right in the heart of the city,” Mr Steele said.

“There is a fantastic and continually growing business economy here and we know that our services are a perfect fit for so many business owners who have been hit hard over the last couple of years.

“There’s also been some great innovation and we have helped businesses adapt to the changing climate. We understand what people have been through and are still going through and we can’t wait to start sharing our knowledge and expertise with even more businesses across York.”

The company has recently appointed a new practice manager and director in preparation for enlarging its geographic footprint. Mr Steele has also been made an ambassador by the regional Institute of Directors.

Our continued growth is testament to the commitment we show to our clients.
