Press Release 3rd April - Matthew Dreaper joins FD eXcel

FD eXcel grows to five

Outsourced Finance Director group FD eXcel is delighted to announce the new appointment of Matthew Dreaper, growing the team of part time FD’s to five.

Matthew has held a director position for a number of small and medium-sized businesses over the last 13 years including Finance Director of Enigma Health, the UK's leading pharmacy software business and Group Finance Director of Nucare plc. Whilst at Nucare Matthew was instrumental in a strategic review and the subsequent trade sale of the Nucare group for £49m.  Matthew has since set up his own financially-focussed advisory business, which has raised over £2.5m for a number of early-stage technology ventures, with funding coming from both private and professional investors.

Throughout his years of experience Matthew has acquired many skills in order to successfully manage all aspects of a finance function, as well as managing acquisitions, divestments and corporate fund-raising, corporate governance, shareholder communications and negotiations with customers and suppliers, an essential skill set for any client of FD eXcel.  Matthew comments, “My experience is founded in global corporations, however through this experience I am able to apply this knowledge as a member of the management team in any number of very different small and medium-sized businesses.  I am looking forward to working with the clients of FD eXcel helping them to make successful financial decisions for the future”

FD eXcel was formed in 2013 as a group of outsourced, part time Finance Directors joined forces to deliver “best in class” services to the SME market.  For many SME’s, to employ a Finance Director is a huge cost which many cannot afford.  FD eXcel can alleviate this heavy cost for its clients by offering the services of highly experienced commercial FD's at a fraction of the cost of a full time FD.  

FD eXcel’s Services include:
×                      Business Health Checks
×                      Cashflow Management
×                      Compliance
×                      Long Term & Exit Planning
×                      Mentoring & Coaching
×                      Reporting and KPI’s
×                      SAGE Training & Reselling
×                      Trusted Business Partner

Whether it's for one day a week or two days a month, the FD eXcel team is available to help with those difficult issues which are normally dealt with by a full time Finance Director, by providing a flexible cost-effective solution.

Clients operate within a variety of industries including angel investing, automotive, care homes, IT, manufacturing, plant hire, print, property, recycling, satellites, software and telecoms. Turnover’s range between £1 and £40 million.
