Having spent 3 years working at Deloittes in their Small Business Department in Newport, Owen made the move into industry. He has held both FD and MD roles in SME’s with turnovers between £2 million and £40 million. With his strategic skills and commercial expertise he has helped many of the companies experience significant growth, one of which was recognised by the Sunday Times Fast and then Tech Track over three consecutive years. Owen has participated, as a shareholder, in multiple exits and has had extensive exposure to acquisitions, disposals, due diligence and business integrations.
Owen’s experience has covered multiple industries from Telecoms, Energy, IT, SaaS, Agriculture, FMCG, Hospitality, Environmental, Print, Medical and Professional, both Solicitors and Veterinary. All the businesses have been the vision of entrepreneurial, family or owner managed enterprises, with one exception, a VC backed international group. Almost without exception the growing businesses have required focused cash management. This has included cash raising and utilisation / generation of own funds through profitability and efficient business processes, especially debt prevention. Businesses have also required strategic reviews, reacting to market or customer demands and turn arounds included transforming a low margin wholesale business into a high margin retail business.
Owen has worked and travelled extensively around the world and is looking forward to helping owner managed SME’s in the South Wales, Hereford and Gloucestershire area achieve their goals.
