Hi, I’m Shane
You probably have some questions about who I am, my background and what I’m like to work with…
Well, since 2017 I have been the founder and Principal Coach of Summit SCALE® Coaching. I’ve coached small to mid-sized owner-managers across the globe to increase their profits year-on-year, build effective teams to help them run their businesses and get time back for themselves.
I’ve coached in a broad range of sectors including, amongst others, agriculture, arts, healthcare, energy, professional services, real estate, construction, technology, and manufacturing. I use a globally proven business coaching system developed by a network of the best of the best coaches working in 1000s of businesses around the world.
From 2012 to 2016, as CEO, I led a group of seven SME companies, managing the combined revenue growth of 300% in one year and ultimately selling two of the companies for a multi-million sum in a single deal. During this period I led the turn-around of financial performance from a £1.8m loss to £350k profit in 18 months and mobilized an £85m contract for the provision of support services to the UK Border Agency.
Between 1999 to 2011 I was part of a leadership team that grew a real estate business 2000%, from SME to FTSE 250 company in 8 years. As Managing Director – Operations I was responsible for a £240m revenue business unit with £1.83 billion of real estate assets under management and led a team of over 1000 people operating in 135 sites in 23 cities. During this time I oversaw the turn around of business unit performance from £400k loss to £11m net operating profit in two years.
I am a devoted family man and love reading titles on business leadership and management and as a former helicopter pilot all things aviation. I hold a masters degree in coaching and development. I enjoy outdoor pursuits including hiking, sailing, skiing and fly-fishing. Being a kiwi I love my rugby and cricket!
