Meet the Problem Solvers

Our three teams of part-time directors of Finance HR and Marketing are ready to support your business.

Each Business Partner brings the passion and drive that comes from running their own small business and combines it with the technical knowledge and experience of years working in a part-time director role in high performing businesses. It is this formula of entrepreneurialism and expertise that delivers results for clients.

In addition you get the back up of client support and quality control to ensure the service is consistent and of the highest professional and ethical standards.
