A HORSHAM company celebrated its silver jubilee last week with a special function, exactly 25 years to the day it first started doing business in the town.
Clive Hancock of Mortgage Solutions, West Street, invited a host of fellow Horsham business people, friends and associates, to share their success at Horsham Cricket Club last Thursday (November 17).
Addressing the crowd, many of whom were instrumental to the independent mortgage consultants longevity in the town, Clive reminisced about how the firm got started.
“I had never been to Horsham and I didn’t know anybody,” said Clive, adding how he started with no clients, but this changed when he placed an advert in the West Sussex County Times.
“I have kept it all these years,” continued Clive, pointing to the advert, “hoping we would get to this moment.”
Horsham MP Francis Maude also helped mark this major milestone for the local financial services firm by giving Clive and his co director Paul Watts a personal message of congratulations.
He said: “Clive and Paul are to be congratulated on this achievement. It is a testament to their skills and reputation that they continue to thrive in what has been a challenging market over the last few years.
“Horsham is a thriving town with a lot of independent businesses and it’s great that Mortgage Solutions has been here throughout this time providing independent advice for Horsham people.”
Clive believes the secret to their success is due to their steadfast approach to reputation and professionalism. He said: “Our promises made in 1986 have not changed in 25 years. Our aim then, as it is now, is to give straightforward professional mortgage advice in what can be quite a confusion world.
“Hopefully you will all agree that the company’s reputation and professionalism is second to none.”
