Whatever the financial situation in your business, we are available to help. Between us we have encountered most situations and have provided FD support in almost every sector. As the Financial Times said: “… with experts at your fingertips and the freedom to use their services when needed, outsourcing can provide a vital boost to your business.”
Malcolm, FDSolutions’ co-founder, has a law degree and is trained in mentoring and corporate finance. These skills enable him to guide businesses to create achievable strategies that can be soundly financed. After 25 years in the business he has many connections who are available to help clients with issues beyond the scope of Flexible Directors.
Examples of Malcolm’s expertise include:
- Creating the business model for one of the first help-desk operations in the country, bringing in investment from 3i. It won contracts with Microsoft before a successful exit
- Restore financial control in a software business which had lost £2m of VC investment. It returned to profit in 12 months
- Help a major London theatre recover from poorly conceived capital projects and fallout from 9/11, to become one of the most highly regarded theatres in the UK. Since then the Arts Council has sought out FD Solutions to assist other members
Malcolm qualified as a chartered accountant with Stoy Hayward (now BDO) in 1985, later becoming FD of quoted Baldwin plc, concentrating on acquisitions, disposals and shareholder relations.
