In the old pre-Gen AI days, I read law at Birmingham University, I joined Guinness Mahon Investment Management (GMIM) in 1985. In 1987 I (somehow!) was Money Observer's top-performing UK unit trust fund manager. I left GMIM in 1989 to set up CRT Group plc a consultancy, recruitment, and training business which we later renamed Spring. With a great team, we grew Spring, both organically and by acquisition, to a market capitalization of over £600 million, sales in excess of £400 million with 2,500 employees operating from over 200 locations. In 1996 Spring sold 50.1% of its equity for £109 million to Knowledge Universe, a private US-based company.

I left Spring in 1999 and set up AdviserPlus Business Solutions in 2000. AdviserPlus is the leading advisory outsourcing organization in the UK providing HR, employee relations, and H&S solutions to primarily FTSE 100 companies. AdviserPlus was acquired by a Private Equity investor in November 2016.

I became CEO of Riverview Law, a legal outsourcing business, in the summer of 2011 following its creation by AdviserPlus. Riverview Law provides managed legal services to corporate legal departments. Riverview Law was acquired by EY in August 2018.
