I have a Masters degree in Chemistry, and a Post Graduate qualification in Management. I held a couple of technical management posts at Unilever plc before being appointed Development Manager at a subsidiary of Norcros plc.
My first MD position was at Data-Label Ltd where I achieved 20% per annum compound sales growth whilst increasing net profit from 10% to 12%; doubling the net profit per employee
Over a 9 year period I managed that company through two changes of ownership, and along the way learned a lot about the do’s and don’ts of post acquisition strategy.
I then spent 4 years as MD of Anglia Labels Sales Ltd before starting my own consultancy business in 2001, providing clients across a number of industries with hands-on help to improve business performance. In 2004 I bought Aconsulting, a Business Brokerage which I’ve run ever since.
For a number of years I’ve invested successfully in both established companies and start-ups.
The fact that I’ve been married twice proved that I’m an optimist. Between us Jo-ann and I have four children, ten grandchildren, two dogs, a rabbit, and assorted tropical and cold water fish.
We’re both PADI advanced scuba divers, though these days we spend most of our free time walking; most recently across moorland and along coastal paths.
