FBCC Patron Goodwille’s 25th Anniversary: 25 Years of Helping Businesses Succeed in the UK

Founded in 1997, Goodwille this year celebrates 25 years of helping foreign-owned businesses to enter, grow & scale in the UK, during which time they have facilitated the UK market entry of thousands of businesses from around the world.

Their Founder, Annika Goodwille, created the company with a distinct vision; to provide all the professional advice and services a foreign business may need to enter the UK, consolidated under one roof. Moreover, these services were to be provided by a diverse and inclusive team of experts who specialized in five main departments; Governance, Finance, HR, Payroll & Front of House services. Fast forward 25 years, Goodwille continues to be a family-owned professional services provider, with a vibrant team of experts contributing to a hardworking, inclusive culture.

“To be working for the businesses my mother founded now 25 years ago is an amazing feeling. I have no doubt that she would be incredibly proud of the growth and development we have seen. We’ve faced economic uncertainty, a global pandemic & Brexit in recent years, during which time we have seen fantastic growth. Clients see the value of our service day-in-day-out, and our reputation globally continues to grow. I’m excited to see what we can achieve in the years to come.” Alexander Goodwille, Development Director.

Whilst Goodwille remain strongly connected, through their founder & client portfolio to the Nordic region, they are currently providing professional business services to clients founded from around the world.

Over the years, Goodwille has had the pleasure of assisting over 2000 companies in their journey to the UK. From budding startups to well-established brands, such as Lindex & Zettle. Significantly, despite the increased demand for their services, they have continually been able to strengthen their growing team, whilst maintaining the core values that the company was founded upon.

Kevin Rutter, CEO says;  “I have been with Goodwille for over six years, during which time it has seen great growth as a business. It is important to note that this is not just in terms of financial success or growth in reputation… I have seen great growth in the talented individuals that work as part of our collective. To be celebrating 25 years in business is an immense achievement and we look forward to celebrating many more in the future!”  Kevin Rutter, CEO.

Traditionally, Goodwille have been known to celebrate in style. This year is no different. Firstly, they will be hosting an exclusive Nordic-inspired three-course meal for many of their clients, staff, and strategic partners. This will be followed by an evening event at the Carousel, London, with a charity raffle to raise funds for their company charity, the Microloan Foundation.
