Derek is pursuing a portfolio career as an interim director, entrepreneur, investor, non-executive director and business advisor.

A former chief executive of a Scottish Business Insider Top 500 company, he has held various senior Finance roles with blue chip companies, and built and sold his own accountancy practice.

He currently is a Finance Director for a fast growing home improvements company in Glasgow.
Derek’s philosophy is to keep things simple. Have a vision, craft a plan around that vision, work to make the plan a reality, keep the score as you go along, watch your cash and above all do not allow experts to complicate things. 
His areas of expertise include business start-up, growth and exit, strategic planning, sales and business development, turnaround, change management and mergers & acquisitions. 

Derek is a member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and in his spare time, he enjoys football, working (unsuccessfully) on his six pack at the gym, politics and current affairs.
