Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West has cut the ribbon and officially opened WYG’s new, purpose built headquarters today in Headingley, Leeds.
The international multi-skilled consultancy employs around 2,500 people globally with over 400 based in Leeds. It was only in January that shareholders of WYG voted overwhelmingly to rubber stamp a refinancing deal that secured the long term future of the company.
Paul Hamer, Chief Executive, WYG Group, said: “As a major employer in Leeds, we are absolutely delighted that Greg officially opened our new headquarters and had the opportunity to meet our team. We are extremely proud of our base in Leeds and the move to the new office is another fundamental building block that provides renewed confidence to our clients.”
MP for Leeds North West and Shadow Health Minister, Greg Mulholland was taken on a guided tour of the building to meet staff before cutting the ribbon to officially open the building.
Greg Mulholland said: “As a significant employer in Leeds North West, WYG make a valuable contribution to the local economy. In these straightened financial times it is heartening to see that it is still possible for business to thrive without loosing their roots in the local community.”
The new headquarters consolidates three smaller offices in Leeds to improve communications and efficient working by bringing the teams together under one roof.
