A company which helps SMEs to scale up rapidly by giving them access to experienced part-time directors is continuing to expand nationally with the appointment of a new Yorkshire regional director.
Bristol-based BoardroomAdvisors.co.uk has appointed Leigh Everington to build a team of up to eight advisors across the region.
Hull-based Everington has held senior roles for Canon UK in the north of England before working as group managing director for a large Yorkshire based SME as well as running his own businesses, including in energy technology industry.
BoardroomAdvisors.co.uk aims to disrupt the recruitment market by providing direct access to a talent pool of part-time executive directors for commercial, operations and CEO roles. It allows scale-ups, SMEs and their private equity backers to rapidly fill gaps in the management team, with no recruitment fees and a fraction of the cost of a full-time hire.
The advisory firm offers dedicated professionals for each region but draws in specialist skills as required by each client and project.
Leigh Everington, BoardroomAdvisors.co.uk’s Yorkshire regional director, said: “I believe the concept, and calibre of professionals we give access to, can offer the region’s SMEs the high-level advice which can help them succeed in these challenging times.”
BoardroomAdvisors.co.uk was founded by John Courtney, who has founded seven businesses and been listed as one of the country’s top 100 entrepreneurs.
He said: “Leigh is a born entrepreneur who brings an impressive track record of growing revenues for SMEs and larger businesses. I’m sure his practical knowledge of sales, marketing, operations and creating business cultures, including teams, will prove invaluable to businesses across Yorkshire.
“Our advisors have all founded, built and sold businesses. They bring experience managing in difficult times and different economic conditions and can draw on this knowledge to reduce costly errors and get firms to the place where owners and the board want them to be.”
