Meet our team
Our founding directors, Clive Gardner and Nigel Whiteman, commenced their working relationship in 1981 as managers in a Process Engineering company which engaged in a wide variety of projects in the Dairy and Meat industries.
As General Manager of the Projects Division, Nigel can recall his frustration and concern at having to run relatively complex and high risk projects with limited financial information from crude computerised accounting systems. This frustration was shared by Clive as Financial Controller and so jointly they evolved policies and procedures to better manage and report on projects in a corporate environment.
By 1984 PC based systems were emerging and providing new and exciting opportunities for those with an interest in business management. The temptation was too great for Clive and Nigel who left the security of their corporate world to establish a business providing financial management systems to project based businesses.
I take a lot of satisfaction from the great relationships I have built over the years with my clients. In business and management consulting our clients constant strive for improvement always brings interesting challenges. I am proud to be able to play a part in delivering positive changes to our clients.
