Spinningfields Creates New Community of Business Professionals

Spinningfields Business Group (SBG) has joined forces with Spinningfields Management Company to create a high profile networking group of senior personnel, which will offer new partnership opportunities.

SBG, the brainchild of Bill Jones of JMW Solicitors, was formed about 18 months ago with the intention of bringing together some of Manchester’s top professional and financial organisations from the flagship Spinningfields business area. Current members include JMW, Bank of New York Mellon, Shoosmiths, PKF, Baker Tilly, Grant Thornton, Brown Shipley, Pareto and Pinsent Masons.

Spinningfields Management Company is responsible for the £1.5 billion mixed-use Spinningfields estate combining property management services with expertise in marketing, events and PR.

Bill Jones, Managing Partner at JMW said:

“The SBG has proved to be a great success and it made perfect sense for the group to join forces with the Spinningfields Management Company with the common aim of promoting this important business area of Manchester which is well known as the Canary Wharf of the North”

As part of their joint Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives SBG and the Spinningfields Management Company will be supporting the Wood Street Mission a local charity which provides invaluable support to under privileged children and their families based in Manchester and Salford. Last year the Mission helped over 8,500 local children.

Mark Burgess, Director for Spinningfields Management Company commented;

“We feel that SBG is a great initiative that brings together senior business professionals from the Spinningfields business community. It offers a unique opportunity for like-minded individuals to network together and share ideas. Spinningfields Management Company is looking forward to working together on programmes and events to raise much needed funds for the Wood Street Mission.”

Jan O’Connor, Manager at the Wood Street added;

We are so pleased to hear that SBG and Spinningfields Management Company will be working together on initiatives going forward. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from both parties not only in monetary donations but also in much needed supplies such as children’s clothes and books which are essential to us.”
