Experience & achievements

Corporate Governance- delegated authority

Helping owners the authority that needs to be delegated to prevent bottle necks. Create the balance between delegating what you are comfortable with and providing sufficient scope to empower your directors and employees

Governance structures achieve this balance stimulating growth and engagement.

Pension schemes- from the CFO/Finance Director perspective

Vice chair of the Merchant Navy Officers Pension Fund employers’ group, representing the smaller employers.
Chair of a DB pension scheme divested the defined contribution section and a new investment strategy was implemented to move the scheme from deficit within two years to 91% self-sufficiency.

Non-Executive Directors | Professional Trustees

A company that connects companies and pension schemes with the best partner to make a positive difference

Whether it's delivering a complex project for an organisation, ensuring that members receive the benefits they are due, or just simply getting things back on track.

Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) – acquisition support

If handled correctly it is more efficient to achieve growth through business acquisitions rather than organic growth.

I have supported companies by working with advisors to decide ownership structure, carry out initial evaluations, formal due diligence processes, legal negotiation and completion.

Commercial contracts- create the framework

Clear contractual conditions mitigate commercial disputes.
Supported by 30 years’ experience this tried and tested approach for the creation of commercial contractual conditions ensures you match contractual terms with your risk appetite with specialist lawyers supporting the more complex areas.
