Introduction to the North West Region

The North West is home to over 7 million people and consists of five counties including Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside.

Manchester and Liverpool are cosmopolitan thriving cities of engineers, scientists, creatives, artists and industrialists. They attract the curious, the ambitious and the innovative. Manchester was recently revealed as the UK’s Top Digital Tech City.

Many business start-ups choose the North West because there is a great pool of talent already living, working and studying here. 

Although the region is dominated commercially by the cities of Manchester and Liverpool the area is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Cheshire and Cumbria which attract millions of tourists to the area each year whilst the Golden Triangle of Alderley Edge, Wilmslow and Knutsford is home to millionaire footballers and celebrities.

Mark, Regional Director for Boardroom Advisors manages the North West Region where we have a team of local Advisors (see links to the left) and a national team of over 75 Advisors.
