Cambridge Plumbing's Problem

Brett Marshall needed help to structure his business in a way that would help retain high-quality staff by offering career development opportunities within the company. He needed to make sure he chose and kept the right staff members to keep up the high service standards of the business.

Brett also needed help with managing the cash flow and financing to fund business growth and cover overheads. He wanted to build wealth, establish a trust fund and protect his assets.

How we helped
