Gok Wan among celebs at office launch party

GOK Wan joined by Coronation Street and Real Housewives of Cheshire stars at launch of £1.4m Sedulo offices in Liverpool

A host of stars and celebrities were in the city to celebrate the launch of Sedulo’s new £1.4million offices in Exchange Flags.

Gok Wan treated guests to a music set while they mingled with Coronation Street star Sally Lindsay and her husband Steve White – who is the Paul Weller Band drummer.

Real Housewives of Cheshire star Seema Malhotra was also in attendance alongside her husband Sandeep Malhotra – CEO of Forever Unique.

Former rugby league star Greg Inglis also joined the party at Sedulo, which is a financial services company established in 2009. 

It represents clients including musicians, sports stars and TV personalities including household names such as David Haye and the boxing Smith brothers. They also support Rugby Super League giants Leeds Rhinos, having gained experience advising a number of professional clubs and international sports stars over the last decade.

Sedulo’s new Liverpool lease is costing more than £1million, while the company spent a further £400,000 transforming their 7,000 sq ft space in Exchange Flags.

Upon entering the offices on Thursday night, clients and guests were greeted by a 3,000sq ft backlight bar dressed in black and green to provide a very intimate and calm working space with secluded tables and a speaker system.

The new offices feature a ‘Klopp/Kendall Suite’ complete with signed shirts from Sir Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Ratcliffe plus an indoor garden, table football machine and seats in blue and red set against Goodison Park and Anfield.

The main boardroom has been designed like a military bunker, complete with sandbags and 1940s Wrens uniforms in order to pay respects to Walker House – where the office is located – as it once housed a bomb-proof bunker in the basement as part of a military command headquarters.

A podcast studio, modelled on Oprah Winfrey’s set, has been put in place as well as an outdoor Victorian terrace garden overlooking the Royal Liver Building.

Sedulo founder, Paul Cheetham-Karcz, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our new offices in Liverpool and delighted that so many of our clients, business leaders and celebrities were able to join us for this spectacular launch event. 

“We’ve got big ambitions for Liverpool and look forward to welcoming more people into our offices in the coming weeks and months.”
