Mark Pilkington In 60 Seconds

As a highly experienced FD who has worked solely with owner-managed SMEs, both in the UK and overseas, I know the challenges that business owners face. I have 20 years’ experience in the construction industry and have been through turnarounds, fund raising, fast growth and start-ups. I joined The CFO Centre to support business owners who otherwise cannot access an experienced FD. Now, I enjoy working with inspiring business leaders around the region from Guildford, to Hove, to Kingston upon Thames.
