An experienced business turnaround specialist has launched Business Doctors, the UK’s fastest growing support service for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), in the Manchester East and West regions.
Des Smith, a quantity surveyor with a senior management background in the construction and support services sector followed by a series of successful interim roles, has joined the Business Doctors to provide support and strategic advice to owners and directors of SMEs, helping them become successful.
‘I have helped many companies grow and become more profitable. I now want to bring that experience to bear on Business Doctors’ clients,’ said Smith. ‘The economic environment has improved but it is still tough out there. I am excited at the prospect of helping SME’s get the most out of the economy.’
Business Doctors, with more than 36 operations across the country, provides smaller businesses with advice to drive business growth, from strategies for sales and boosting profits to advice for effective people management, accessing finance and acquiring other businesses. ‘I will also be working closely with the other Business Doctors operating across the country, drawing on our respective skills to help our clients and to promote business growth,’ he added. Rod Davies, founder of Business Doctors, added: “We are delighted to strengthen our presence in Manchester. Des is a great example of all our Business Doctors around the country. ‘He is a proven business advisor who can give top class support to SME’s based on his successful track record and solid commercial experience,’ concluded Davies.
