My career has taken me from a start-up and subsequent disposal to a USA company, remaining as European MD, to a Management Buy In, a pre-pack admin and latterly 10 years of independent business advisory and NED roles. I appreciate value creation and have direct experience of merger and acquisitions on both sides of the deal. A passion for transformation and problem solving, financially literate, devoid of ego, with a non-theoretical approach, I offer something unique. Big picture thinking, challenging the status quo and driving change through innovation and team motivation. I am a creative situation specific problem solver, using data and data analytics to find smarter strategic solutions, enhancing the power of people to deliver ‘consequential success’.

bluewaveSELECT is a specialist SAP recruitment business that supplies SAP professionals globally to deliver enterprise-sized business transformation programmes. We engaged with Tony over a 6 month period to help our leadership team design and deliver the next steps in our growth strategy. Tony brought considerable business knowledge from outside of our own industry to the table which was exactly what we were looking for. He also challenged the status quo and facilitated debate around our next stage growth plans and how to achieve them. Good guy, very personable and has the transferable skills.
Tony has supported me and CNG for a number of years now. He has a way of seeing things differently to most, finding ways of doing things that are insightful! Straight talking and focussed he has helped me as a mentor and coach to see through the fog to get to the real crux of the problem. Thought provoking and challenging he has been a great addition to our board. I would highly recommend Tony to any business that needs help in finding a better way to do things and cutting through to what the real issues are.
Tony and I worked over a six month period to initially execute a professional coaching program. After initial discussions and assessments, a very proactive, open and honest discussion was had. Which enabled the program to be very bespoke giving maximum advantage to the organisation and myself. As well as giving a focus for Tony to develop and guide the program which is now bringing a positive impact on the organisation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tony as a coach, and will be the first contact to call for future requirements for myself.
