With over 25 years of experience in commercial finance roles, Chris Burton-Brown has the experience and expertise to give your business the financial focus it needs – whether for a single project or for long-term change
A Chartered Accountant (FCA), Chris has worked across a variety of sectors, holding Finance Director positions in several businesses and working in teams that have sold companies for £40m or more.
Chris established Mylor Financial Management in 2012, bringing his significant expertise to businesses of all sizes that cannot afford or do not need a full time finance specialist. Today, Chris helps businesses to:
Chris also advises on wider finance considerations including business acquisitions, finding funding for your business, and selling your business.
“I help businesses take the best financial decisions – giving them the freedom and confidence to make the right choices for the day-to-day running of the business as well as planning for long-term goals.”
Initially I had a one-to-one with Chris and he had a brief look at what was happening with my accounts. From there we went on to forge a great working relationship and Chris transformed my method of invoicing and taught our Office Administrator how to manage the accounts.
We had monthly meetings with Chris and he provided monthly reports and offered advice on various aspects of the business including, of course, the accounts. I cannot recommend him highly enough and would urge anyone who is struggling to manage their business to meet up with Chris and see what he can do for you
Also, Chris has been instrumental in driving a strategic focus for the company, leading discussions which have helped us to identify which parts of the business we need to focus on in order to build the business and become more profitable, and for the first time, I now feel in control of where the company is going, rather than being reactive. I also ask Chris to attend key meetings with me with customers to help provide a professional image for the company. I would be delighted to recommend Chris
In addition to this, Chris has helped me develop robust plans, budgets and cash flow forecasts and has been an invaluable source of guidance and support. This allows me to focus on the growth and development of the business in the confidence that the finances are in safe hands.
He’s made a substantial difference to the timeliness and accuracy of the numbers, and brings a financial perspective to some of the major publishing issues of the day. Chris has also shown endless patience in training non-financial people to understand the significance of the numbers and make better decisions accordingly. It was a great pleasure having Chris by my side.
On a personal note, you have saved my sanity – going back to running the accounts on top of the day job was just not working!
