I acquired Four Seasons Recruitment in September 2004 from Sandy Porter who established the business in 1981. Since the acquisition, the business has doubled its turnover and now provides a wider range of services to clients following significant investment in Consultants, systems and marketing. Prior to this I was co-founder of Parkside Recruitment in 1989, from a start up the business developed into the market leader in all of its office locations. The Hot Group plc acquired Parkside in August 2003. Previous experience has been gained in the film industry, manufacturing businesses and finance. Personal interests include football, tennis and golf.
