A business consultancy in Birmingham is switching its model to become owned by its staff.
Curium Solutions has set up an employee-owned trust which will retain a majority stake in the company.
The city centre firm was set up in 2008 by twins Adam and James Farrow and Andy Dawson.and specialises in business transformation, working with clients such as Tesco, National Express and Zurich Insurance.
Adam Farrow said: “Our team has always been central to the success of Curium.
“After such a successful year against such a challenging market backdrop, we decided that now was the right time to move to this new model, recognising the immense contribution that every employee makes.
The Birmingham Post Business Awards are back for 2021 and now open for entries here. The event will be held online only on Tuesday June 15 and will celebrate businesses and individuals across 12 categories including our overall Company of the Year and a special covid award.

“Apart from setting up the trust, nothing else will change. The team and board remain the same, backed by our ambition to grow, develop new services and support many more customers for years to come.”
James Farrow added: “Culture is everything and this new structure gives us a very firm and secure platform for growing Curium in the future.
