With 35 years ‘real life’ business experience, Neil has: Directed and held a shareholding in a £40 million pound turn over National CV Parts Distribution business employing more than 300 staff across 40 UK sites; whereby he increased independent trade sales by 20% year on year as well as leading a portfolio of four major product development plans, increasing the relevant product sales between 18% and 76%; he has been head-hunted by the majority shareholder of a distribution company to formulate and implement a restructuring and business plan that would enable the business to once again generate profits, whereby Neil’s ability to provide strategic direction and deliver exceptional results, saw his initial contract extended for a substantial period.

Neil is also a strategic thinker with strong analytical skills and a detailed understanding of commercial risk that enables him to achieve a significant contribution to any organisation. He is a practised relationship and team builder, which allows him to initiate change management over single or multi-site businesses.
