It gives us great pleasure to announce that Steve Mackie successfully completed his management buyout of North Laine Financial Management on Friday 30th April 2021. As you may be aware, Nick Gorton has decided to retire after 17 successful years jointly running North Laine Financial Management with Steve. Nick and Steve incorporated the company together back in 2004 and, having developed the business to be one of the region’s most well-respected Chartered Financial Planning firms, Steve was perfectly positioned to fully take over and continue the company’s development.
Steve Mackie, Managing Director, commented: “Having successfully built-up North Laine Financial Management over the past seventeen years, I couldn’t be more excited to take on full ownership. My personal integrity and doing the right thing by every one of our clients will be at the heart of the business. I am extremely proud of my existing team and will be recruiting to strengthen the business further over the coming months and I look forward to developing and enhancing the company’s service proposition and processes.”
Steve is currently in the process of meeting every one of Nick’s clients, with Nick personally handing them over and formally introducing them to Steve. If you have not already had your handover meeting, we are aiming to complete these by the summer, at a mutually convenient time.
The North Laine Financial Management team are always here to help, so if you need anything at all, or have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We very much look forward to working with all our clients during this new exciting chapter for North Laine Financial Management and thank you all for your continued support.
