Matthew Allen has extensive knowledge of consumer goods, retail and selling B2B services and a broad experience of sales, marketing, finance, IT, supply chain and contract negotiation.
He has a successful track-record of structuring start-up businesses and taking existing SME businesses to higher achievement levels. Matthew has held a number of Managing Director, Commercial Director and Sales & Marketing Director roles throughout his career.
Having started working life in the Entertainment industry with companies such as Nintendo UK and Sega Europe, he then started his own business from a start-up and grew this to a £30M T/O business employing 80 staff. Over an 8 year period Matthew undertook an MBO, reverse takeover of a much larger business and an exit.
Since exiting his own business, he has most recently been advising other entrepreneurial businesses on their growth and helping them re-structure. He is now keen to put those skills to good use with The FD Centre to help scale our London region.
