What is the 373 Group

The 373 Group was founded in 2014 with the aim of helping businesses in Devon and Somerset become more successful.

Chris Lorimer, one of the founders, got the idea to form the group when waiting for his connection home at London Paddington Station. “I bumped into a London consultant who was reluctantly travelling to Devon to do some work”, he said, “We agreed that the work would have been better done by a local professional. We have amazing businesses in our part of the world and we can help each other to be more successful”.
