Mike Brennan, Group CEO of Norman Broadbent Group said:

“The Group came into 2020 with good momentum and plans for further growth. We opened a new office in the North of England, relocated to better Central London offices, and were actively seeking to appoint additional team members in both centres. Then, like many businesses, we were impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The early and very decisive actions taken by us, combined with our broader portfolio of services and collaborative and innovative culture, meant we were better placed to respond to these challenges than others. It was not easy, but our team rose to the challenge! 

I would like to thank our shareholders for their continuing support, and our clients for placing their trust in us. I would also like to pay a personal tribute to our team who showed real commitment during the Covid-19 crisis. It is an honour to be their CEO, and I am proud of their achievements, much of which is down to their hard work, loyalty, and dedication.”
