Two years ago seems like an age away. For most, early 2021 brings back memories of COVID, worries about what the year will bring and the Winter cold biting further.
For our London Stadium Associate Partners’ Apex Accountancy, January 2021 was a challenging month which saw them lose their Founder and Principal, Raj Kumar Maini (“Raj”). Raj established the business in 1991 and over three decades turned a local West London based business into a well-known regional operator with more than 900 regular clients.
Rohit Maini (Raj’s eldest son), alongside his wife Yesha Agrawal, took over the business. With a lot of hard work, client loyalty and a slice of luck, they, alongside a new Apex team, retained more than 97% of the existing client base and even managed to grow and diversify into different industries. Given that neither Rohit nor Yesha had been part of the business previously, this was no mean feat. However, this certainly could not have been done without a strong and diligent team.
Throughout 2022, Apex was able to capitalise on the foundation they had built through the previous year and grow the client base to more than 1,100 regular clients, all whilst moving offices! Apex is now based in Stockley Park, a large 88-acre business park in West London home to Marks & Spencer, Samsonite, Canon, Sharp, IMG Studios and others.
Apex also joined the London Stadium Associate Partnership during 2022, they agreed a multi-year deal with sports rights specialists Eleven Sports Media to join the London Stadium Associate Partnership programme.
The programme is designed to provide local businesses with a voice in professional sports, Apex will have the platform to communicate their services to widespread audiences both online and on matchdays the iconic venue.
Today, Apex continues to stand on Raj’s broad shoulders but with a renewed excitement and anticipation for the future. Not only for itself, but more importantly for its clients. Even though two years still feels like an age away, for Apex it has come by very quickly.
