Brothers and former directors Freddie and Edward Chambers are now co-chairmen of the business, having taken over from their father, David. 

The latter had been at the helm since 1991 and will stay on as non-executive director. 

The brothers have worked at the family business for more than a decade, which was founded by their grandfather John F. Chambers, in 1956. 

Lindum has offices in Lincoln, York and Peterborough and employs about 600 people. 

Freddie said: “While this marks the next step in the Lindum future, it really will be, we hope, a case of ‘business as usual’ for our people, partners, and clients, whilst we focus on continuing to try to improve what we do and keeping competitive for clients, with a geography east of the M1 in the main.” 

Father, David, added: “I am so pleased to be able to hand over the lead chair role to such capable, honest and interested sons, who get on well and I am delighted we’ve got a really good team going forward.”
