Your financial business partner

We specialise in helping medium sized businesses to realise their full potential by providing the hands on financial expertise they need, working as a long-term business partner.


Why do I need this financial expertise?

In all large businesses, the financial expertise is led by the Finance Director.  With a unique forward looking commercial perspective, they play a pivotal role in the success of a business. 

As a medium sized business, you need this expertise just as much as as a large company - but without breaking the traditional full time Finance Director mindset, it's much harder to access.

If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.

The solution

Profitability Solutions was established by Nick Lumb to combine a passion for working with innovative thinking businesses, with the realisation that many medium sized companies struggle to get good financial expertise.

Nick's career background is as a highly commercial Financial Director with wide ranging international experience at an operating level within large UK and US listed technology companies. These include Smiths Industries plc, Oxford Instruments plc, and VIASYS Healthcare Inc.  Prior to that he had a variety of roles within BP Exploration and Courtaulds plc.  Despite the large size of these parent companies, Nick has always worked at the "sharp-end" - in operating units ranging from £3m to £25m turnover.

As a Financial Director, Nick has had responsibility for not only Finance, but also IT, HR, Quality, Health & Safety and Facilities.  This breadth of experience enables him to identify the critical business issues, and then to implement simple solutions that work for the entire business.

Nick now enjoys working as a trusted business partner with clients, providing the commercial and financial expertise they need to make their businesses more profitable, faster growing, and easier to manage.
