We are delighted to have bolstered our Midlands team with the appointment of a new regional partner covering Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, and Herefordshire.
Having worked at senior management and board level, Simon Glover brings a wealth of knowledge to the franchise role including experience of business sales, acquisitions, and succession planning.
Simon set up his first stationery business in 1996 at the age of 26, selling a range of items from a catalogue. He then moved into the printing industry and guided his company through many changes including the big leap forward into large format and signage.
A combination of organic growth and shrewd acquisitions ensured the business grew from start-up to more than £4 million. Since selling the company five years ago, Simon has focused on sharpening his skills as a sales and marketing consultant and has advised on many successful exits and acquisitions.
“As soon as I saw the franchise had become available, I thought it was perfect for me,” he said.
“It was a massive leap of faith but I’m really loving doing this role full-time and sharing my experience of the joys and potential pitfalls of selling a business.”
