What is your background?
25+ years in senior B2B business creating, building, growing businesses in the Construction related arena up to £85M turnover. I’ve been involved in sales & marketing planning and implementation at senior level in both client & agency facing positions.
Where do you want the organisation to be in two years time?
Well the first 2 years have seen huge growth so we’d just like that to continue that in truth!
"Our process is always the same. We do what you need support with, so you can focus on other areas."
Could you suggest one thing to Government to help businesses or your growth - what would it be?
Empower SME Business Owners with incentives to create more jobs, and encourage greater investment.
What affect do you think Brexit will have on your business and the UK?
Hot Potato alert! On our business it will not impact greatly in the near future as we are not currently targeting overseas business. For the UK as a whole (and I have a view privately as to its merits) we need to embrace the changing landscape and take advantage of exporting to overseas countries across the world as a whole, and to seek to use it as an opportunity to invest and expand manufacturing within the home nations.
What do you do to relax away from the office?
Watch football although I’m not sure how relaxing that is in truth!.... and walk our dogs (truly our best friends).
What hobbies do you have?
Football & F1 racing, music - life would be dull without it - and animal welfare.
Have you any hidden talents?
Hmmmm!... None that I’ll declare here!
What would you advise yourself if you were starting out on a career today?
People buy People – so demonstrate your hunger, enthusiasm and tenacity to others and you’ll never look back.
Any final words?
After witnessing a recent rapid decline in my father’s health I really do realise that life isn’t a rehearsal - live it now and the future will take care of itself.
