Sothertons celebrate 40 years of servicing Gladstone!


Steve Marsten and Tina Zawila, Directors of Sothertons Gladstone, are proud to lead one of Gladstone’s longest-running businesses, this year celebrating 40 years of service.

Heading up a committed team of professionals, Steve and Tina credit their longevity to a simple philosophy – a commitment to build relationships that encourage confidence and empower people to pursue their dreams.

Over 40 years, the Sothertons team have built their reputation for providing quality, professional advice, along with integrity and a passion to deliver the best possible outcomes for their clients.

‘We have some clients that been with us from the start, back in 1977’, Steve says.  ‘We believe that investing in our client relationships develops a strong partnership, where we not only deliver trusted advice but learn and grow alongside our clients.  It’s what keeps it interesting!’

It’s the same commitment that is applied to all clients, as well as within the Sothertons team.  ‘Steve and I started our careers at Sothertons over 30 years ago, and some members of the team have been here a very long time – collectively we have around 140 years service!’, says Tina.  ‘When you’ve been together that long, you become like a family and we have a very special synergy within the team that helps us to deliver our high standards of service and advice.’

Evolving from the formation of Fagg and Cathcart in 1977, Sothertons has come a long way, with a commitment to make a difference to the lives of the people they come into contact with, that has seen Sothertons thrive for 40 years.
