Jeremy Priestley is a business advisor and founder of many companies in the areas of receivables management, international forums, and consultancy. Though many of these businesses have been sold, he retains the skills and experiences he gained from founding and operating these corporate ventures. His enjoyment of starting and operating businesses has left him as a veteran in his field.
His interest in business began as he took a foundation accountancy course in London and began to work for his first firm back in Sheffield. From the start, his skill was apparent. He was made a partner after just two years at the firm, and a managing partner after five. These achievements simply represented the skills that he already displayed for consultancy and accountancy, as he grew turnover by 800% at this first firm.
The foundational skills which set him up well for this first job have continued to expand throughout his career. Working for local, independent firms instilled in him the desire to start a business from scratch and this was what he began to do. He established a business focused on receivables management, and attracted many high-profile clients such as Yahoo and Microsoft. He continued to lead this business into audit and recovery work, and eventually set up and international forum business which attracted many blue chip clients.
Jeremy Priestley has attained business success on the back of hard work and some natural skill. He now focuses on giving back to the community by supporting a range of charities, but business is still on his mind after the lucrative sales of some of his companies. For a versatile entrepreneur such as Jeremy, there are many options for the future of his business career which is already packed with experience.
