About

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.

My background

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.
