Speaking at the launch celebration of the company’s new office in Glasgow on 19 May 2016 which was attended by staff and clients, Craig Maguire, head of LSH's Scottish operations has revealed they are now in a prime position to significantly scale up the business north of the border.
Craig's appointment earlier this year appointment has come during a crucial phase for LSH in Scotland. As well as the move to their new Glasgow HQ in Bothwell Street, the company is also relocating to larger accomodation in Edinburgh this summer, with the opening of a new office suite in Castle Street.
LSH has also recently strengthened its teams across Scotland with a number of new appointments and promotions within key departments.
And as Craig is quick to point out, the solid footing has been built despite a backdrop of two years of political uncertainty across the UK: “In the last couple of years we’ve had the Independence Referendum in Scotland, a UK General Election, Scottish Parliamentary election and the forthcoming EU Referendum to contend with. There’s no doubt political uncertainty impacts the market and makes investors jittery.
“That said, LSH has built solid foundations during that period and I believe the new offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as our on-going recruitment policy, are major milestones in the firm’s growth plans for Scotland.
“We are committed to doubling the size of the business in Scotland and by investing in new premises and staff we are providing our clients and competitors with a sign of our intent to move up a gear.
“Everything is now firmly in place for us to strategically expand our operations in Scotland,” added Craig.
