I am a professional businessman and award-winning entrepreneur. By the age of 26 secured my first MD position and 12 years later became an entrepreneur. In 2006 I executed a BIMBO of Brightwork recruitment and exited 2017 achieving a 75 times return to shareholders. In 2009 I invested in R&D tax specialists Jumpstart and grew it from 3 people to become the fastest growing SME in Scotland for 3 years and secured £3.4m investment along the way. In Jan 19 Jumpstart was sold and I exited. In July 15 I was diagnosed with cancer. After an operation and some post op chemotherapy I was discharged in Oct 18 and declared cancer free. In 2016 I was awarded a lifetime achievement award for my contribution to entrepreneurship. In 2017 I was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Business Administration by Glasgow Caledonian University.
