With director level experience in some of the county’s largest family businesses, Russell will now use his skills to help the county’s small and medium sized business owners realise their ambitions.
Russell says: “Too many SME owners find themselves spending the majority of their time working in their businesses rather than on them. We call this the owner’s trap and it’s a guaranteed way to stall your business’s growth potential. Business Doctors work with SME owners to help them identify and solve barriers to growth. We are not the kind of organisation that writes a report, sends an invoice and disappears into the sunset. We really get involved and work alongside small and medium sized business owners to help them create the best organisations they can.”
Rod Davies, Business Doctors’ co-founder, said: “I am confident that Russell will be able to use his experience to transform the fortunes of small and medium sized businesses around Leicestershire. “He shares my belief that SMEs need hands on, practical support and not just consultancy. Business Doctors offers an affordable and jargon free middle ground between coaching and consultancy and Russell is well placed to deliver this service to an exceptional standard.”
Russell lives with his family in Bitteswell and in his spare time enjoys amateur drama. He developed the business bug at a very young age and at just 19 became one of Victoria Wine’s youngest branch managers.
Now with 30 years’ business experience behind him, he is a high profile figure in the wholesale industry and has been a council member of the Federation of Wholesale Distributors.
