From Zero to £10,000,000
“We doubled our revenue year on year … and grew from a start-up to sales £10,000,000 in 10 years. Romney’s input has been worth hundreds of thousands if not millions.”

“We sold the business for £25,000,000.”
“I attended a seminar that Romney delivered for senior managers in Recruitment. I approached him about helping us formulate a strategy to exit the business in 3-5 years. We appointed Romney as a Non-Executive Director. He gave us a fresh perspective, objective analysis, accountability plus ideas and insights based on 40 years recruitment experience. We increased our spread of clients, increased our margins. We looked at what we could do in terms of marketing and strategy for getting more business. Romney helped us to develop our second tier of management, to develop their skills, so that the business was less reliant on the individuals who set it up and could operate successfully without us. He accelerated the process of achieving a successful exit – within 18 months of hiring Romney we sold the business for £25,000,000.”
