I have been a Chartered Accountant in practice for over 40 years (37 as a partner) advising SMEs and professional partnerships on all aspects of their finances. During that time I developed a specialism in healthcare but also have wide experience in property, builders merchants, pharmaceuticals, importing and engineering services. I have been a quasi-FD to companies that don’t need a full-time FD. Agenda setting and chairing meeting. In those situations, I developed a deep understanding of the business and how the directors managed the business. In many cases I have helped the owners realise their ambitions of selling their business – grooming, tax planning, negotiations (including with private equity)  and due diligence.  My experience in healthcare means I am well placed to advise GP practices and corporate entities providing healthcare services, both inside the NHS and privately.  I am looking for an NED position in established SMEs where I can help develop opportunities and avoid the pitfalls.  I am not seeking to replace “the accountant” but to be a sounding board to review and challenge.
