Halesowen chartered accountancy firm and business adviser Nicklin & Co celebrated 70 years of business recently.
West Midlands-based Nicklin & Co has grown to become a five-partner firm of 50 staff offering a range of accountancy and business development services.
In the run-up to its 70th birthday, Nicklin has hosted a series of successful ‘meet & mix’ luncheons with local MPs for informal opportunities to put questions to the politicians.
Staff at the firm also hosted an ‘open house’ afternoon event at its Church Court, Stourbridge Road offices, inviting wellwishers to join them for a celebratory drink on the eve of the anniversary. The highlight of the celebrations was the 70th Anniversary Ball, held at the Copthorne Hotel near Dudley. More than 250 people joined the firm in the Earls Suite for a special night of dinner and dance.
Partner Harvey Owen said: ‘We are proud of our history, and the way in which Nicklin has developed over the years. We like to think today’s business, while working hard to maintain its edge retains some of its traditions, which our clients deserve.
‘At the same time, we never lose sight of the future. Our success is partly due to our ability to change with the times, through being proactive rather than reactive. Here’s to another 70 years!’
