Andy Dunkley is the latest business expert to join business support franchise, Business Doctors and will be setting up his new office in Milton Keynes, Bucks.
After spending over 30 years of working in corporate and private equity-owned companies, Andy was ready for a change in direction and was drawn to the idea of helping SMEs within his hometown.
Born and raised in Northampton, Andy went to university in Southampton before becoming a chartered accountant with Grant Thornton working in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area.
Andy worked for Newell Brands in a variety of finance roles before taking on CEO roles working for companies owned by private equity companies and within the private equity sector focused on growing businesses to create value for their shareholders.
Andy told us “I have always taken a great satisfaction in working with people to achieve growth and their business goals but also to help them with their personal goals through coaching, training, and sharing experiences. I believe that our working life is so much more important than ‘just a job’.”
This mindset makes him a perfect match for the founders of Business Doctors who started the Business Doctors franchise with the same belief some 18 years ago.
Matthew Levington said, “Andy totally gets us! He genuinely wants to help business owners within his location, he wants to make a difference and enjoy the journey along the way – we are delighted to have him onboard.”
Business Doctors Franchising was launched in the Northwest of England in 2004 and now has offices in Bulgaria, Belgium, India, Republic of Ireland, Malta, Myanmar, Portugal and South Africa.
