Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire (PRWEB UK) 18 February 2013
The third quarter of last year saw net company growth halved in Hertfordshire town, Rickmansworth.
Between July and September, the company register increased by just 30, compared to 60 in Q3 of 2011. The drop in net company growth was due to a slight fall in company formation (5%) and a large rise in company closures (46%).
Interestingly, the percentage of young director appointments (under 25 years old) increased during this period, while female director appointments decreased.
Managing Director of Duport.co.uk, Peter Valaitis commented:
“Our report shows that, like the rest of the UK, Rickmansworth is feeling the effects of the financial crisis.”
“However, the rise in young director appointments that occurred during the third quarter should help inject fresh ideas into the business community and help kick start the local economy.”
