My degree in Management Sciences was followed with a time in operations and marketing at British Airways. The next 9 years was spent in the electrical sector, successfully turning around a regional retail chain, clearing substantial debts. This was followed with 5 years at Travis Perkins, running a subsidiary company of garden centres. This ended when I raised £11M and completed a management buyout of the chain, subsequently sold for £19M. I now have an internet publishing company and am helping a few small companies either managing growth or a return to profits, often at the request of their bank.
