What Happened at Finlay James in November?

The end of 2017 may be approaching, but things at Finlay James certainly aren’t slowing down!

We have celebrated another record month in November, meaning that in the past 12 months, nine of our previous record months have been broken.

FJ in San Fran

We have opened our first international office in Downtown San Francisco at the beginning of November – two months ahead of schedule - and welcomed three new starters to the FJ family – Anant Gill, Brendan Crosby and Marie Bartz! Our new office is based in the super-cool WeWork offices at 650 California Street and as such we are ideally placed to support the City, plus the Bay and Silicon Valley areas.

On the new office opening, CEO John Gaughan said:

“This new office represents the next phase in Finlay James’ continued growth, and is the fifth office for the company. Building on the success of these offices, Finlay James plans to continue to expand both nationally and internationally to 80 people by September 2018, with a headcount of 10 in San Francisco.”

Another New Starter

We also welcomed Emily Lewis to Finlay James in November. Emily will be based in our London office!
