I have started a few businesses. The reason I started my first one was I got frustrated at working for a large corporate so in 1994 I set up an independent financial adviser business which I sold to Linear (part of LSL) in 2013.
In 2000 I started a surveying business – United Surveyors – that I sold to Countrywide in 2011.
In 2003 I started ULS Tech which floated on AIM in July 2014. I have since left to set up GOTO.
I have been in surveying from when I started United Surveyors in 2000
It is rewarding to see new customers benefiting from the service that we provide. A lot of our estate agent clients have never earned from homebuyer reports or building surveys. It’s great to see them providing good advice to purchasers and at the same time earning an extra income.
Spending time with family, playing golf badly and watching sport
1966 World Cup Final – great to see England football team win a tournament
Relaxing with family, watching the kids play sport particularly golf and football.
John Lennon – great musician so could provide the music and would have a lot to say
Caroline Aherne – comic genius
Steve Jobs – he could sort out my iPhone!
