Our founder and principal business consultant is Russ Nathan C Eng CBE. He is probably best known for taking Romtec plc from start up to public quote on the AIM market. This IT business grew rapidly through organic growth followed by joint ventures, acquisitions and finally being itself acquired by a US corporation.
Previously he was a specialist in the computerisation of production management in manufacturing companies then advancing through a sequence of high profile jobs with major IT companies. In parallel with the day job he chaired several public sector organisations including Business Link for which he was the national chairman.
More recently, Russ set up SMEserve in order to make his extensive skills and experience available to SMEs with high growth potential.
Russ’s approach to business mentoring is not that of conventional consultants. For the clients of SMEserve he is a force for a strategic and planned approach to achieving greater business success. For example among current clients:
We have worked for a client in the construction sector for 3 years and in that time their turnover has tripled.
Our client in the recycling industry was restructured and is now achieving 25% revenue growth year on year.
