Q5’s Leeds business will focus on providing organisation design and development support to its growing list of clients in the north of England.

Establishing a full-time presence in Leeds will allow Q5 to meet an increasing demand from clients for help with organisation change projects. This latest office opening enhances Q5’s global presence, which includes offices in London, Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York and Sydney.

Olly Purnell, Q5’s Managing Partner, said: “We are celebrating our 10th year of trading and further expanding the Q5 network. Over the past 10 years, we have enjoyed working on projects in Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Liverpool.  We are always looking for better ways to serve our clients and hope that through our new Leeds office we can combine both our global and local expertise to best support our clients in the region.”

Roger Marsh, OBE, Chair of Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said: “I’m delighted the LEP Trade and Investment team were able to support Q5 in their location search, following an initial meeting at the Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong. I look forward to seeing the company grow at its new Leeds City Region base. It’s a great start to the year following a successful 2018, which saw 23 successful inward investment projects secured for the region creating 1,500 jobs.”
