Colin Lawson – founder and partner of Equilibrium Asset Management

“Celebrating our second consecutive win at the North East Cheshire Business Awards is an incredible achievement!

To be awarded Entrepreneur of the Year in our 21st year of business simply emphasises the fact that we have come such a long way since I set up Equilibrium from my back bedroom in 1995. From those humble beginnings, we now employ 60 staff and manage almost £600 million worth of assets for more than 850 families.

For all of that hard work to have been recognised independently on such a fantastic night which celebrates the success of Cheshire businesses is extremely humbling.

We couldn’t have asked for a better year. To commemorate our milestone birthday, we launched a huge fundraising initiative to reach £21,000 for our chosen charities which was reached on our official 21st birthday party and the year has been a whirlwind of achievements for the business as a whole.

We’ve expanded our staff, taken on new clients and surpassed our targets in a way that we never could have envisaged.

Receiving this accolade will only reinforce our professionalism and commitment to serving our clients in the best way possible and help us on the path to further expansion.”
