Seasoned Midlands entrepreneur to head up new Business Doctors franchise

Business consultancy chain planning further expansion

Successful entrepreneur Mike Gulliford has been awarded a new franchise by Business Doctors, a fast-growing chain of consultancy specialists.

Gulliford, who has been in business for 40 years, will head up Business Doctors East Midlands, with specific responsibility for Derby and Nottingham.

Having grown and sold several businesses of his own, Gulliford has established an excellent reputation for business advice through his own consultancy firm, Interconsult, and believes his experience will dovetail perfectly with the Business Doctors brand.

He said: “Business Doctors provides proven recipes for success and I am looking forward to bringing that to companies in the local area. 

“I am very passionate about helping the local economy to grow and firmly believe that helping small and medium sized companies implement change by putting in place firm strategies and offering practical, down-to-earth, common sense advice, from a position of experience, is the way to get the local economy back to where it should be.”

The establishment of the East Midlands base is part of a concerted plan of expansion by Business Doctors, which specialises in offering practical advice to smaller companies.

Rod Davies, director of Business Doctors, said: “The speed at which we are growing proves that there is a great hunger in small and medium-sized businesses across the country for the kind of expert, friendly, practical support and advice we offer.

“And with a number of territories still available, we’re very keen to hear from anyone with great business experience looking for a new challenge, who believes they could make a good addition to the team.”
