In 1974, Melvyn Winburn and Colin Glass spotted a gap in the market for a firm of accountants to offer hands-on support to businesses. With David Norfolk, they brought their collective experience from private practice, investment banking and industry and WGN was born.
Over the last 40 years WGN has grown substantially through recommendations from satisfied clients, but has retained its core values. Entrepreneurial skills, a passion for helping businesses develop; a positive work ethic and an ability to motivate are qualities that have helped WGN, and our clients, to succeed. And you could too.
