Speaking about his retirement, Graham said: “I have had an amazing time at Pierce, making many great friends while providing some inspirational entrepreneurs with advice that has helped them to grow successful businesses of their own.


“Some of that advice included succession planning and I am pleased to say that Pierce has a team in place who will ensure it can go from strength to strength by continuing to deliver the high level of service for which Pierce is renowned.”


John Green says: “Graham’s clients have known the care and attention of a superb professional and will not be disappointed going forward as their needs will continue to be met by a team of people who share his values and commitment to quality.


“Practising what he preached about succession planning, Graham has been mindful of building a strong team to continue his good work once he retired.


“Many businesses in Lancashire and beyond have benefited from his experience and expertise and I am sure that they will join us in wishing him all the best for his retirement.


“With Graham’s help, Pierce remains a progressive and dynamic firm which has naturally and organically evolved into a forward thinking practice with ‘one stop shop’ facilities for its clients.


“With a strong backbone of long serving staff, an experienced Board of Directors and excellent preparation for the future, Pierce is very well placed to support the North West business community.”
