Deal raises profile
Close backs ICAS in five-year sponsorship
It provides providing Close Brothers Asset Finance with the opportunity to network with ICAS’s members at events, seminars and meetings while raising its profile among the institute’s membership.
Commenting on the deal, Colin Swanston, managing director, Glasgow transport division, said: “We are delighted and very proud to have established such a close working relationship with ICAS, who are the world’s first professional body of chartered accountants, formed in 1854, not long before our own formation in 1878.
“We have sponsored the ICAS insolvency and restructuring conference for four years in a row and will continue to work in partnership with ICAS to provide solutions and services not only for ICAS members, but their members’ clients as well.”
Anton Colella (pictured), chief executive of ICAS, said ICAS looks forward to working closely with the Close “to develop activity which is of real value to ICAS members”.
He added: “To have such a long term commitment from Close Brothers Asset Finance to help us grow our insolvency and restructuring community is really exciting for us and a clear signal of their commitment to ICAS and their long term intent support our members. We look forward to the partnership ahead.”
