Dermott Thomas said: “This is an exciting time for us all at Barker Gotelee, and within the business services department especially. The additional space enables us, for the first time, to bring the teams that make up the Business Services Department together into one specific location.

“Always placing attention to detail and our clients’ experience with us at the forefront of our offering, this will enable the teams to collaborate even more closely, a move that will be beneficial for our clients and positive for the teams too.”
