Heavyweight Board Advisors For Fast-Growth Agencies and Tech Start-Ups

Building a brilliant company takes drive and tenacity. However, fast growth requires expert advice to make certain it’s achieved quickly, effectively and with minimal risk.

For over two decades I led several leading pioneering digital, creative and strategy companies and a multi-discipline agency group, and built up extensive M&A experience with several successful agency sales. I’m now chairman, non-executive director and board advisor for agencies, private equity firms, tech startups and ICOs.

Having used a structured approach for more than twenty companies, the results are exceptional:

  • Team of seven to Top 20 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

I love working with highly driven owners. Together we focus on:

  1. Immediate action plans and three-year roadmaps
  2. Exceptional positioning and competitive differentiation
  3. Hiring A Players and developing superstar teams
  4. Bulletproof financial strategy
  5. All aspects of M&A including exit planning, due diligence and negotiation

I occasionally take on new clients, and can recommend heavyweight specialists in a number of areas (see the biographies link above). Get in touch if you’d like a chat.
