As one of the two co-founders of online financial services pioneers Avantia Insurance Ltd, since leaving the business and having helped lead it through a very successful private equity-backed MBO, I have found a new passion in working alongside owners and leadership teams of smaller businesses to help them start, grow, change or face whatever challenge might need to be overcome.
Having previously started a company that began with 4 members of staff and 0 customers, and growing it to over 120 staff and 100,000 customers, I am very familiar with the pains and challenges that small and medium-sized businesses face, and how to overcome them.
Growth and success, no matter how hard-won, never arrives in a nice, predictable straight-line, so managing sustainable growth, and adapting to, or even leading market change in such a competitive environment is something that I have become very accustomed to.
The skills I learned and experiences lived through as a business founder and leader in one of the most transparent, competitive market environments in the world have been invaluable to the clients I have been working with over the past few years.
