PM+M launches as the “North West Centre For Family Businesses”


The only corporate member of the highly regarded International Centre For Families in Business (ICFIB) in the region, PM+M has announced a number of services, specifically tailored for the complex needs of family owned and managed businesses.

Opened by Ian Brown of established local family company Graham & Brown, the new centre is a unique offering which will provide a hub for family businesses to gain expert advice in areas such as management and ownership succession, integration of business planning with family goals, family tax and wealth management and even conflict resolution.

Jane Parry, Partner at PM+M commented: “For nearly a century, PM+M has been providing family businesses with quality advice. Through our continuing investment in resource, training and expertise, we have developed an innovative offering which our clients can be confident is the best available to them.”

Ken Austin, owner of Savile Row tailors Benson & Clegg, a client of PM+M for nearly 75 years, explained: “What makes the company really stand head and shoulders above the competition is the level of service provided. I get regular calls explaining recent developments in the financial world and how we should take advantage. PM+M bring with them ideas which I would never have dreamt of by myself.”

Ken added: “We’ve had many companies pitch for the contract over the decades, but there’s simply no reason to entertain them. PM+M’s service is invaluable to us and I can’t imagine that we’d be looked after this well by anybody else.”

Working to the continuing ethos of helping family businesses to succeed through the generations, PM+M has collaborated to produce supporting resources including a book ‘Living in a Family Business’ for new and existing clients, cementing their commitment and support for generations to come.
