Business Doctors, the UK’s fastest growing support service for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), has established an operation in North Yorkshire, building on its presence in the North of England.
The business, which provides support and strategic advice to owners and directors of SMEs, will be run by Simon Monaghan, who joins from his family business where he was Managing Director and Chairman of a group of architectural ironmongers and hardware distributors.
Business Doctors, which has some 30 operations across the country, provides SMEs with a range of advice to drive business growth, from strategies for sales and profitable growth to advice for effective people management, accessing finance and acquiring other businesses.
Prior to running the family business, Mr Monaghan was in the Hong Kong Police for 17 years where he served as a Senior Inspector.
Mr Monaghan said:
As with all Business Doctors’ operations I am looking to bring my expertise and proven track record in business to help SMEs realise their growth aspirations. In my former role as a Chairman and Managing Director of a £15m turnover business with some 100 people, I have dealt with everything from dealing with staff issues and cash flow problems; to negotiating with bank managers and suppliers. I hope therefore to bring a fresh pair of eyes to my clients’ business and in doing so help them prosper.
Rod Davies, founder of Business Doctors, said:
We are delighted to have grown our presence in the North and that Simon has decided to join us to head up the operation in North Yorkshire. Having been there and done it at the highest level in business, Simon is typical of all our Business Doctors around the country. They are not just consultants, they are proven business people and can advise from a position of vast experience.
The North Yorkshire operation is the tenth in the North adding to offices in Derbyshire, Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside and Stockport. Such growth has earned Business Doctors the reputation of being a commercial version of Business Link.
