It’s fair to say, we’ve had an exciting year so far and it’s only March!… And we’re excited to be able to announce that Haines Watts Kettering has moved from our much loved, yet somewhat impractical office in Headlands to a purpose-built, open plan space at the heart of Kettering Venture Business Park. Even though the last 10 years in our ‘old digs’ have been fundamental to our growth and development, it was agreed early last year it was time for change and an ‘upgrade’. This followed a steady influx of new people to the team over the last couple of years, and it’s safe to say, we quite literally outgrew our old space!
Our new location ‘on the park’, ensures we’re situated firmly in the hub of business within Kettering and means we’re central to others within the professional sector, many of whom we already work closely with to provide our clients with an overarching provision of services and in doing so, help them reach their Destination with Speed and Certainty.
Chris Timms, our Regional Managing Director commented “Not only does the move benefit our clients, in providing facilities they quite naturally expect from a top 15 national firm of business advisors, it also allows the team to work more co-efficiently. This firmly sits at the heart of our business model of providing collaborative services to owner managed businesses within the South East Midlands region.”
Amongst others, a key focus for us over the next few years is supporting not just the expansion and development of the region, but investing in the most important asset any business has – our people, and their performance, development and wellbeing. Ollie Askew, from our Accounts team, believes the modern and open office will “improve inter-service line relationships, where you can speak to your team rather than just ‘drop them a line’ and wait for a reply.” As Steve Jobs always said “ideas don’t happen in the boardroom, they happen in corridors.” Rebecca Ball, Outsourcing Senior also believes the move “makes us feel more ‘professional’ and more in tune with our larger regional office based in Northampton.”
We’re firm believers in getting to know our clients as well as we possibly can, keeping them up to date with what we’re doing and how this positively affects them. So, with this in mind, if you’re a client (or a potential client) and in the area, please drop in and say hello, we’ve got two brand new boardrooms (which we encourage our clients to use) and a shiny new office to show you - just let us know and we’ll pop the kettle on!
New Address: Unit 1, Brooklands Court, Kettering Venture Park, Kettering, NN15 6FD
