A club made up of the most powerful people in the North East business community has welcomed one of the region’s oldest and best-known firms as its key sponsor.
Wealth management company Brewin Dolphin has signed up to support the North East Chamber of Commerce President’s Club for the next 12 months.
The company, which has a large office in Newcastle employing more than 360 people, is one of the leading providers of wealth management services in the UK.
The NECC President’s Club represents around 250 companies and organisations from a wide-range of sectors including services, manufacturing, education and professional, to local authorities, housing groups and the public sector.
NECC president, Dave Laws, said: “Brewin Dolphin is one of the North East Chamber of Commerce’s oldest members so it is fitting that they have agreed to sponsor this prestigious club as we head towards our 200th anniversary in 2015.
“As a company with an impeccable reputation and a long and proud history of success.
“I am delighted to welcome them as main sponsors of the NECC President’s Club.”
With over 30 offices throughout the United Kingdom and Channel Islands, including a regional hub in Newcastle, Brewin Dolphin offers a wide-range of wealth management services to private investors, trusts, charities and pension funds.
As one of the founding firms of the London Stock Exchange, and with origins dating back to the mid-18th Century, the firm enjoys a rich heritage and experience in wealth creation and preservation.
Today, it manages £28bn in investments and was recently recognised for its Managed Funds Service through winning the City-Wire award for Best Cautious Portfolio 2013.
Brewin’s head of office in Newcastle William Baker Baker said: “As a major employer that is firmly committed to the region, Brewin Dolphin is delighted to be supporting the NECC President’s Club.
He added: “Through this association, we are proud to be lending our support to an initiative which is helping to build a foundation on which it is able to make the North East a better place to do business.”
