Company Spotlight: PM+M
Just weeks before the release of Lancashire Business View’s 100th issue, we’re delighted to look back at our first ever issue from March 2005 and speak with some of the advertisers that have been with us along the journey.
Established in 1919, PM+M is a leading chartered accountancy, business advisory and wealth management firm with offices across the North West. PM+M have also been advertisers in Lancashire Business View since issue 1.
Jane Parry, managing partner at PM+M shares her experience working with Lancashire Business View over the years.
LBV: How did your business first get involved with Lancashire Business View magazine?
JP: PM+M has been involved with Lancashire Business View since the beginning and we’re incredibly proud to have been regular advertisers and ongoing supporters ever since. It’s been fantastic to witness their continued growth throughout this time and we’re grateful that we have been able to play a role in that.

JP: Advances in technology have revolutionised the Lancashire business community, creating agile and innovative organisations who are able to adapt to changes in the business environment much more quickly. The last 18 months in particular have undoubtedly been a period of change for us all, but despite the disruptions brought about by the pandemic, we have witnessed nothing but optimism from business owners who have worked tirelessly to continue to support their customers, employees and communities.
LBV: How has your business changed in this time?
JP: Since Lancashire Business View launched their first edition in 2005, PM+M has grown rapidly, hit some exciting milestones (including our 100th year in 2019!) and achieved lots of things that we’re really proud of. Like many businesses, PM+M has had to adapt to keep up with the changing business landscape in recent years, but our deep roots and commitment to Lancashire have allowed us to continue supporting our valued clients and helping them achieve more.
