Core Experience of Principal:
Management consultancy: experience initially in corporate finance and then specialised in strategy over 20 years. Have done acquisition evaluations for strategic fit, due diligence reviews, valuations and management buy-outs. I have training courses in financial skills of management and corporate governance. I was part-time financial and strategy director for 12 years in a family controlled group, while acting in an advisor role to many other clients. Speciality is sharpening market focus on most profitable segments and developing performance measures and management reporting to focus on and guide performance improvement.

I have learned from experience that SA companies understand market segmentation poorly and seldom use it to maximise their business potential; I generally help them find the missed opportunities, build this into their strategy and improve competitive advantage and profitability.
