Managing Director Paul Cheetham
Having established itself with 60 staff in Manchester, the next logical step was to open an office in Leeds. Managing Director Paul Cheetham says;
“Leeds is a great city, it is vibrant, up and coming and progressive and it was always the next cityin our plan after my home town. If you look at the development of the leisure in the past few years it is obvious their is a buzz in the city which we want to help create. It happened in Manchester with the building of Spinningfields as the business district and the subsequent birth of high end bars and restaurants like Living Ventures, Neighbourhood and Tattu. All of which are in Leeds now, so the city is full of progression and we would like to think we can add something new to the professional services in the city too” Sedulo adhere to provide its holistic services across the client base and go from 35 staff to 50 staff within a few months – over 100 staff in both cities.
