Spectrum 2010 - Clive Hatchard, Ian Milne, Simon Davies and Fiona Williams
It is with great pride that we announce that we have passed a significant milestone in the history of Spectrum – 10 years in business – and we could not be prouder of what we have achieved.
2010 was a significant year for lots of reasons – David Cameron became Prime Minister; William and Kate got engaged; Apple released the first iPad; Instagram was launched, and Downton Abbey first hit our screens, as did TOWIE!
In 2010 167,545 companies were established in the UK – Spectrum was one of them. Fast-forward a decade and we’ve reached this significant milestone, and whilst we tend to always focus on the future, we thought it fitting to look back at some of the amazing things we have accomplished over the years.
We have completed 220 deals, opened new offices, grown our team to 30, supported local charities, won awards and joined an international network of exceptional advisors. We have worked shoulder to shoulder with some remarkable business owners and management teams, supporting them through some of the most important transactions in their lifetime. We have helped UK entrepreneurs achieve their ambitions and when the time was right, found the perfect home for their company to continue to thrive under the next generation of management. We have remained wholly committed to the Private Equity community and worked hard to become nationally recognised as a trusted deal adviser to the sector. We have had the privilege of working alongside some incredible professional advisers, who continue to inspire us, challenge us, and remind us why we love what we do.
10 years ago Spectrum started with a simple ethos – to always view things from a client’s perspective and ensure quality is at the forefront of everything we do – a principle we stand by 10 years on.
It has been 10 years’ worth celebrating, and whilst a proper Spectrum party will have to wait, for now please accept our huge thanks for supporting us throughout the years; we are looking forward to many more.
Simon, Clive and Ian
"We are very lucky to have a team of talented individuals at Spectrum who have made this possible. Over the years we have welcomed some who have developed their careers, then moved on; and many who have progressed through the firm, learning and developing, and remain with us – all have been talented, tenacious and driven and share in the culture of Spectrum – to work hard and have fun along the way."
