Further promotions throughout the company see 8 members progressing to Principal level and an additional 13 staff promoted to Senior level.
Pegasus Group Managing Director Tony Bateman said: “It is extremely pleasing to start the new decade with a number of internal promotions as it allows us to acknowledge and reward the talent, hard work and commitment of our colleagues.
“2019 proved another successful year in which we achieved our ambitious plans for growth and expansion and we now number more than 310 staff based across 14 offices, including our latest overseas in Dublin.”
“The Group has had a very good last 6 months despite difficult trading conditions and I believe we will see this continue into 2020. We hope yet again at year end in July to emulate our last financial year’s achievement and record yet another good increase both in revenue and profit.”
