About us

We listen, we reflect, we resolve

South West Growth Service was formed by independent and experienced business consultants Chris Lorimer, Andrew Southall, Katharine Bourke and Phil Johnston in 2016. Passionate about the South West, their combined determination to make a difference in the region is driven by a sense of responsibility to their communities. With Andrew taking a step back in 2019, the team is joined by Ruth Salmon who is a very capable addition bringing a wealth of practical business skills and commercial insights.
