Buying or selling a business in Oxford & The Chilterns?
Simon spent 30 years in the printing industry, and was part of the senior management team who grew the business, through organic growth and acquisition, into one of the largest and leading print groups in the UK.
Spending the last 10 years as Managing Director of one of the group companies, Simon also recognised that the printing was generally in decline thanks in the main to the World Wide Web and other technological advances, and so decided that it was possibly time for a change in direction.
This led Simon to look at possible business acquisition, which naturally involved contact with a number of business agents, which left him generally cold with the lack of care and assistance that they brought to the process. That was until a new enquiry put him in touch with one of The Business Partnership regional offices, when the difference in approach was immediately clear.
Very shortly afterwards, Simon discovered that his home area of Oxford was available and so the decision on the change of career was made.
Simon lives in rural Oxfordshire, a mere 7 miles from the city centre, with his wife and two young daughters, and tries to keep reasonably fit by running in, or cycling by the glorious local countryside.
