Multidisciplinary consultancy Pegasus Group celebrated the opening of its 13th UK office with a launch event in Newcastle.
A drinks reception hosted by senior planning director Sandra Manson was held at Leila Lily’s, when partners, clients, suppliers and guests were invited to toast Pegasus’ continued expansion.
Sandra said: “We had a wonderful evening, showcasing the very best that Newcastle city centre has to offer.
“As one of the fastest-growing cities in Northern England, Newcastle is enjoying a period of investment, which clearly reflects a confidence not seen for many years. We are very excited to be part of the buzz.”
Based at The Corner, Mosley Street, the Newcastle office reflects an ambitious period of growth for Pegasus Group, particularly in the North of the country. The office is a recently refurbished Grade-II listed building right in the heart of Newcastle.
Tony Bateman, managing director of Pegasus Group, said: “We are delighted to open our 13th office in one of the country’s most iconic cities, whose shipbuilding and manufacturing was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution.
“Our Northern-based offices, in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds, already have a significant client base, and a Newcastle-based office enables us to offer an enhanced service to our existing client base, as well as prospective clients and support the growing demand for our specialist planning, design, environmental and economics services across the region.”
