John Dunleavy (Managing Director)
John is a commercial executive with twenty years combined experience in professional service firms and commerce. He is formally trained in Accounting and Finance, Law and International Trade, yet commercially minded in decision making. Currently John manages a group of complimentary businesses, which specialise in:
· Securing government incentives;

compliance documentation, commercialization and business planning.
John’s experience has included providing assistance with management buy-outs, strategic restructure, business expansion and growth, mergers and acquisitions and capital raisings. He maintains a specific interest in using government incentive programs as a form of quasi-capital and grooming emerging enterprises during the start-up and commercialization phases.
Previously John held senior roles with major accounting firms including Price Waterhouse and Ernst and Young before establishing his own consulting business in 1995. John has successfully grown that business to an enterprise boasting an enviable client list including the European Commission.
The insights gained through John’s client consulting work and networks he has built have proved invaluable in assisting other businesses and projects move forward.
John is a regular presenter on indirect taxes, government incentive, and innovation matters and author of technical papers in these areas.
