As we say goodbye to 2015, this second issue celebrates some of the year’s biggest success stories among the region’s business fraternity. Our cover story also explores one of the region’s biggest business announcements of 2015. Lookers plc acquired North East-focused Benfield Motors for £87.5 million this autumn.
In this first (relaunch) issue, there are interviews with Dean Benson of Visualsoft and Jonathan O’Halloran of QuantuMDx – two inspirational business leaders who are bringing true innovation to their fields, from bases in the North East. As is our cover story subject – Atom Bank – which is looking to revolutionise the UK banking system from its HQ in Durham.
