Bradford’s largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants, Naylor Wintersgill are celebrating their centenary year as they mark 100 years since the founder of the firm, George Robert Verity began practising at Hooper Brothers & Watson in Bradford back in 1917.
Naylor Wintersgill Chairman, Alan Wintersgill comments, “We are absolutely delighted to have reached this incredible milestone. Naylor Wintersgill has built a strong reputation in the Bradford community for providing high quality business and accounting services and I am incredibly proud of our hardworking and dedicated team of skilled professionals.”
“While other firms have moved out over the years, we have continued to support and pro-actively contribute to the community here in Bradford and pride ourselves on our commitment to charitable causes.”
To launch the start of the yearlong celebrations for the firm, the staff at Naylor Wintersgill have chosen to support The Bradford Soup Run and are working with the charity to help focus their fundraising activities and events throughout their centenary year.

We look forward to working with all at Naylor Wintersgill towards making the plight of Bradford’s homeless less difficult.”
Naylor Wintersgill Managing Partner, Victoria Wainwright adds, “We are pleased to support such a great local charity in what is a very significant year for Naylor Wintersgill.”

We are proud to have strong longstanding relationships with many of our clients, supporting their growth and success often through generations of leadership. I believe that the success of Naylor Wintersgill really does lie with our people – as a firm we look to provide not only a platform for professional achievement but also aim to instil our strong core values into transferrable skills to benefit the wider Bradford business community.”
