We have a clear direction and believe that with Garbutt + Elliott’s support and advice we will strengthen our national presence and successfully integrate our acquisition strategy.”

The Technology Group provides business communications to organisations in a range of sectors, including the NHS and a variety of education institutions such as Rugby School, Selby College and Dearne Valley College.

Jeremy Oliver, partner at  Garbutt + Elliott, said: “This is a very exciting time for The Technology Group as it looks to continue the excellent growth it has seen since 2011.

“We are pleased to have been appointed and can draw on our own growth experience, which has seen us employ an additional 29 people in the past 12 months, to help deliver the next stage of their plans.

“We have been supporting family businesses across Yorkshire since 1848 and believe it’s our values and providing the right team for each client, to fully understand their culture and objectives, which helps deliver the exceptional service Garbutt + Elliott is known for.”
