Scarborough accountancy firm, Winn & Co has joined forces and rebranded to become Fortus Business Advisors & Accountants. The new professional services brand provides knowledge, advice and support to the business owners of today and tomorrow through a unique, contemporary approach.

Supporting and advising local businesses for over 40 years as Winn & Co, it was the creative and entrepreneurial minds around the newly formed Fortus management table that were keen to explore opportunities to create a new business and a powerful new brand. With newly recruited Executive Directors, Fortus has the freedom to explore the UK wide market, providing advisory & accountancy services to business owners in a unique way.

Fortus’ service offerings include not only accountancy and tax but also property & asset management, HR, talent development, business performance improvement, corporate finance and strategic planning.

Commenting on the launch of the Fortus brand, Sharon Clipperton, Director at Fortus said: “Fortus is made up of a team of talented individuals who have a breadth and depth of expertise. Led by an ambitious, creative, experienced and dynamic leadership team who challenge the traditional thought processes of a historical accountancy partner model.”

“We’ve taken our learnings from the past to create a business for today with distinction and value in respect of our people and our clients. Our strategy has always been and still is, not to hesitate, to drive forward. We’re never afraid to invest in the business in order to deliver longer term sustainability and specialist thinking and advice.”

“We are excited by what the future holds for Fortus and we look forward to working with and building relationships with so many ambitious business owners across the UK.”

Fortus will be operating UK wide with 11 offices and has the main coverage at present in the Midlands and the North of England.
