‘…The way Ralph works is to tailor his services to your needs, so together you can choose the most appropriate package to maximize the value for your business’

In Ralph’s role as a business advisor he mainly works with the owners of micro and small businesses, both start-ups and existing businesses.  This is because this is where his own expertise lies, with over 20 year’s experience in SMEs.  Ralph knows that running your own business can be a joy, but he also knows that it comes with many responsibilities and demands, often with limited resources in these still challenging times.

So, who’s Ralph?


Ralph SavageRalph is a qualified chartered accountant, beginning his career with Clement Keys, a well-known practice in Birmingham, before moving on to be an audit manager at KPMG, where he stayed for 8 years until 1991.

At KPMG he undertook many special projects in industry, including industry secondments, company administration, business planning and forecast and liquidity reviews. This whetted his appetite to become involved in business, rather than just reviewing it, and in 1991, he joined Contract Foods Limited, a food manufacturer with 130 employees and a turnover of £8 million.  He stayed for at the company for 18 years, fulfilling the following roles:

  • Company Accountant
  • Finance Manager and Company Secretary
  • Finance Director and Company Secretary


During this time Ralph was heavily involved in all aspects of running the business, from strategy through to implementation.  Thereafter, he continued his senior SME involvement in a group of companies with over 50 employees and a combined turnover of £3 million.  These companies were engaged in the manufacture, wholesale and retail of luxury goods.

Now, as a Business Adviser who knows what it’s like to work in and run small businesses, he is committed to helping you add value to your business by providing tailored, on-going support, at an affordable cost, to help you make the most of your business. Ralph will share his own skills to assist you with your issues, together with his team of like – minded specialists, as required.
