I have built up a good track record of delivering business growth and significant experience of fund-raising, turnarounds exit strategies and systems implementation.

As well as providing us with strong cash management expertise, which has been absolutely essential, Chris has helped to set up new financing streams, successfully introduced us to R&D tax credits and switched our accounting system from Sage to Xero."
