Since 1994 I’ve led pioneering digital, creative and strategy companies and an agency group, with extensive M&A experience from a number of successful agency sales.
I’m now chairman, non-executive director and board advisor to several agencies, private equity firms, tech start-ups and cryptocurrency ICOs.
I specialise in practical board management to enable very fast growth while minimising risk. More than twenty successful companies have used this structured approach and the results are exceptional:
- Seven-person team to £11m billings ad agency in eighteen months
- 3x Revenue and £1m EBIT in two years, launch into USA with $1m first year revenue
- 3x Revenue and trade sale in eighteen months
- Turnaround from loss-making to 3x revenue and 22% EBIT in fifteen months
Average revenue growth 2017 – 164%
I love working with highly driven owners, focusing on:
- Immediate action plans and three-year roadmaps
- Exceptional positioning and marketing strategy
- Hiring A Players and developing superstar teams
- Growth-oriented financial management and risk mitigation
- M&A including preparation, due diligence and negotiation
I occasionally take on new clients. Get in touch if you’d like a chat.
