February 2018: New Vernon CEO, Pareto at the races

Pareto Financial Planning announced a major sponsorship deal with Haydock Park racecourse, with the story appearing on Insider, Business Desk, BDaily and the GM Chamber of Commerce website.

The next four columns for Greater Manchester Business Week were on subjects including protecting key people in your business and the upside of employee benefits.

These columns are part of a series of 12 and will be running until April.

The Vernon Building Society appointed Steve Fletcher to be its new CEO, replacing Mike Hanson after 21 years in the hotseat.

The story was featured in a number of industry titles, including Mortgage Finance Gazette, Mortgage Strategy, and Mortgage Introducer.

More locally, as well as in the Stockport Express and the Manchester Evening, the story ran across the main Manchester business websites – Insider, Business Desk and BDaily – as well as on the Vernon’s website and its member email.
