Business Owner, Beech Holdings
Stephen Beech owns Manchester-based Beech Holdings, which takes forgotten buildings in the city centre and transforms them into affordable, environmentally-sustainable apartments.
Passionate about business since he was a child, Stephen was selling Vimto lollies when he was just seven years old and running his own car wash by the time he was 13. At the age of 24, he bought his first investment property, renovating it himself to rent out to four students. In 2001 he established Beech Properties, a lettings company for students in Manchester, and in 2013 built on this success with the launch of Beech Holdings.
Beech Holdings provides affordable, environmentally-sustainable and efficiently-designed apartments for the increasing number of young professionals looking to live in prime locations. The business currently boasts 500 units housed within forgotten buildings in Manchester’s city centre.
Stephen runs one of the most successful property portfolios in the UK and employs over 130 people, hiring new talent on a weekly basis.
