London based Newable acquires leading northern advisory firm Winning Pitch

Newable, the London-headquartered provider of workspace, money and advice to SMEs, is delighted to announce the acquisition of Manchester-headquartered advisory business Winning Pitch.

Founded by John Leach in 2005, Winning Pitch has a turnover of circa £5m and is a leading advisory and entrepreneurial coaching firm, bringing proven insights and powerful solutions to help businesses across the north of England and Wales to scale and to build value. With over 30 years’ experience, Winning Pitch has supported over 16,500 businesses and created over 28,000 jobs, with a particular focus on designing, delivering and managing complex high value business growth contracts on behalf of local and central government.

This includes key work on behalf of Lancashire County Council, West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the Welsh Government for large scale transformational projects.

The deal will facilitate significant growth, combining Winning Pitch’s public-sector driven expertise in the north with Newable’s enviable track record which includes supporting over 25,000 businesses every year and being the Department for International Trade’s delivery partner across London and the South East. Newable offers a full suite of services to SMEs including business advice, lending and workspace through its NewFlex arm.

Chris Manson, CEO of Newable, said: “There is clear synergy with Winning Pitch in terms of our shared people-led values and our objective of supporting the businesses at the heart of the economy to drive and empower growth. Through complementary skillsets, geographical reach and business networks, we will be able to provide an unrivalled offer across the UK to help businesses at every step of their journey, from start up to scale up.”

Jim Keane, CEO of Winning Pitch, comments: “This is a really exciting opportunity to deliver considerable combined expertise for the benefit of businesses throughout the whole of the UK. We are looking forward to working with Newable in expanding on the range of services offered to both existing and new clients, partners and business owners.”

Jim Keane will continue to lead Winning Pitch as CEO and John Leach will continue to contribute in an Advisory Capacity.

The shareholders of Winning Pitch were advised by corporate finance experts David Kendrick and Dominic Eccles of UHY Hacker Young and a legal team led by corporate partner, Stephen Hadlow at Brabners LLP .
