THE Bannatyne Group has completed a £2.8m investment in a new head office in Darlington.
Led by BBC’s Dragons’ Den panellist Duncan Bannatyne, the group is one of the UK’s leading leisure organisations with 3,500 staff, 61 health clubs, 34 spas and four hotels.
The completion of the new head office, which is near its previous base in Haughton Road, Darlington, means it will be home to 80 staff.
Duncan Bannatyne, chairman of The Bannatyne Group, said: “The completion of the new head office demonstrates the confidence I have in the group’s future.”
Chief executive Nigel Armstrong said: “Operating out of the North East has been very successful for the group and we look forward to growing our operations in the town in the years to come.”
