What's in a name?

So why did we chose Halpin Partnership as our name?

Halpin Partnership is named after the late Dr Les Halpin.

As a statistician Les understood the need for high quality data analysis and market insight to inform business planning and improve business processes.

As a philanthropist Les sought to invest in projects which would tackle systemic issues and change the world, ‘in bite sized chunks’.

As an investor and entrepreneur Les helped smart, creative businesses to achieve their growth potential and deliver value to their customers.

As a sufferer of Motor Neurone Disease Les had the drive and passion to fight for the rights of patients to access new medicines.

Les’s positive, kind-hearted personality meant he made many friends. Indeed he was a collector of people and ideas and believed in working in partnership to make things happen.

As a friend Les was warm, enthusiastic and funny. He would also tell it to you straight, because he cared.

Les’s legacy was to set up the Halpin Trust which supports smart organisations to step improve their performance and have sustainable impact.

We are proud that our company, Halpin Partnership Ltd, bears Les’s name and is inspired by his approach to business, philanthropy and friendship.
