Part-time finance directors for SME’s
Finance directors in 2017 should be concentrating on strategic business planning to take advantage of the opportunities Brexit will offer as well as the day to day cash forecasts and internal controls. Do you have anyone in your business focusing on these issues?
Growing a sustainable business means its MD should be concentrating on development and building profitable sales. Partnering with a part-time finance director allows you to “let go” of the financial day to day sooner rather than later, freeing you up to grow your business.
Its time to sell. Because you want to reinvest or retire. Do this right and you’ll sell for the right amount. Do this wrong and it will cost you, both in terms of selling price and transaction costs. Pull in an FD who’s been there and done it before to optimise your business sale process.
We Provide Coaching and Support
Being a Managing Director in an SME is one of the loneliest jobs on earth – I know because I’ve been there. Having a coach helps, because you can discuss ideas and sort out profitable opportunities from the dead ducks before you invest too much time and energy in them. You can have a 1 to 1 coach – and that might suit you. Or, why not join a local group of like minded MDs? No more than 10 in a group, its less costly and you gain from each others’ experiences.

I felt Matthew was able to give me a sense of clarity I hadn't had before about how I can move forward to grow my business. I found him to be incredibly personable, and non-judgemental

.....advice and assistance was invaluable and he has enabled us to attain the right candidate for the role.
Whilst at DEFRA, I asked WRAP to organise an investors symposium and Matthew headed up the team that did it. It turned out to be a very successful event which received great coverage for the sector in the financial press as it identified the challenges to investment in the sector.
Following his introduction Matthew met with the client, quickly assessed their requirements and introduced suitable candidates within days. Our client was very happy with the service provided, and I would certainly recommend QR3 for future projects.
Matthew is one of a rare breed of people who demonstrates not only a high level of financial expertise, but also a high degree of business acumen. He translates the financial aspects of running a business to both the strategic and tactical needs of the organistion.
Robust financial analysis of investment opportunities, helpful strategic input, absolute integrity.
I wouldn't hesitate to use QR3 again to source senior, finance professionals for my business. I thoroughly recommend them.
