He has built businesses from scratch, merged, acquired and disposed of companies on an international basis and created franchises and representative agencies.
As Chief Operating Officer for Holiday Autos, Brian was part of the leadership team that grew the business from £20m turnover in 1995 to £200m+ in 2003, before the Company was sold to lastminute.com.
Following that acquisition, Brian was responsible for planning the integration between the two companies meeting the targets set in the Sale and Purchase Agreement.
Brian has led a number of turn-round operations and has first-hand experience of the needs of growing small to medium sized business whilst at the same time ensuring that costs are kept under control.
