Graham Lamont is a force of nature, when we met with him at the judging day we were bowled over by his enthusiasm and knowledge of the family business sector. Running a family business with his son Chris goes someway to explaining the deep understanding of family businesses but Lamont Pridmore is also a multi-award winning accountancy firm with a wide and varied client base including some of the country’s most well-respected family firms. Lamont Pridmore is our main event sponsors and having them on board has brought more than just funds to help us bring the event to life, they have also provided their expertise, their clients would agree with us about their family business kudos.
Lamont Pridmore are more than just accountants, they are the family’s trusted adviser on all financial and business matters. We learnt more in our first two hour quarterly review meeting than we have in the last ten years. The firm is helping to put all of our business and personal affairs in to a manageable, understandable and simple structure to reduce the business risk, administration time and tax burden for us all. I would recommend Lamont Pridmore wholeheartedly as a family business adviser. – Peter Atkinson, Chairman Carlisle Estates Company Limited
Graham’s keen eye for the financial detail behind the applications was hawk-like, seriously nothing gets past this man! His serious professionalism belies a wicked sense of humour which kept us all in good spirits throughout the judging day. Lamont Pridmore is well known to Cumbria but both Graham and son Chris are involved with a range of projects on a national level too, their expertise on family businesses have brought welcome insight to the awards and we are extremely grateful to Lamont Pridmore for supporting the awards in their first year.Do find them on the night, they are affable and warm people, but make no mistake they know their family business onions!
