Celebrating One Year of The Vertas Group

Celebrating one year of the Vertas Group

Suffolk Group Holdings, trading as The Vertas Group is celebrating one year of its formation. Over the past year, the Group, including Vertas, Concertus Design and Property Consultants and Opus People Solutions have worked under one leadership structure to accomplish great things.

The Vertas Group has been working hard to make the difference not only to their own people, customers, and partners but to the wider community too.

Over the course of the past twelve months, one of the Group’s greatest achievements was working in partnership with Groundwork East to gift Melton Primary School a wellbeing garden, leaving a lasting legacy for the pupils. The Group also participated in the Festival of Suffolk Business Expo, celebrating business innovation and success in Suffolk – inspiring people to think about great jobs, building careers and exploring opportunities.

More recently, the Vertas Group sponsored the Ipswich Town Foundation disability provision and The Suffolk’s Greenest County Awards, celebrating individuals, businesses, communities and schools on the environmental work they do to combat climate change.

Reflecting on the past 12 months, Ian Surtees M.B.A, Vertas Group Chief Executive Officer comments: “The past year has been a really exciting time for The Vertas Group, bringing three businesses into alignment. The combined efforts of all three companies as a Group has meant we’ve been able to make a difference on a wider scale, particularly in regard to our environmental impact, social value, and governance.”

“There are many synergies between our Group, and I look forward to seeing how we continue to make the difference in the future.”

As part of the Group’s journey to work much closer together and share knowledge and opportunities, in April, Vertas’ head office moved to Friars Bridge Road, already home to Concertus and Opus, to support their Net Zero ambitions and support the creation of a more collaborative culture. The exciting new office space, will be shared between all three companies that form The Vertas Group. The move coincides with another success for the Group as Concertus Design and Property Consultants are celebrating 10 years of business this month.
