Burgis & Bullock Celebrates 130th Anniversary by Going “Back to the Future”
- Tuesday, March 28, 2017
TIAG member firm, Burgis & Bullock (Warwickshire, England), has kicked off celebrations for its 130th anniversary by going back to the future in the iconic DeLorean time machine from the famous film series.
In 1906, Messrs Burgis & Bullock relocated their Chartered Accountancy firm to Waterloo Place in Leamington Spa, where it remained until moving to new premises in 1991. The firm has now come full circle by relocating back to the same location where the business spent most of its life.
Managing Partner, Wende Hubbard, said, “The move represents an exciting time in the firm’s 130 year history. Since Mr Burgis and Mr Bullock first got together in 1887 the firm has lived through many changes and events, as have the Waterloo Place buildings since their construction in 1829. Between us we have a lot of history to look back on but we also plan to create even more in the future.
“Having outgrown our previous office it seemed that our only option was to move out of Leamington, so when the opportunity to move back to Waterloo Place presented itself we were delighted. The building provides us with larger, modern working facilities whilst still retaining a number of period architectural features and has enabled us to remain in a prime location in the town centre. The historical connection to the location was an added bonus and it would be good to think that the firm might remain here for another 130 years.”
For the new office launch party the firm and its guests were joined by Doc Brown and a replica his DeLorean time machine made famous in the Back to the Future films.
