Welcome to Jex Business Services

Independent Consultant | Board Adviser | Non-Executive Director | Oilfield Chemicals Specialist | Executive Search Partner

“I am fully committed to supporting the organisations that I work with. This is my full-time occupation, not a ‘side hustle’. I am not a retired executive looking to fill a few hours each week to supplement my pension, I earn my living supporting and delivering value to a portfolio of different organisations. If you work with me you will get my attention and my time, you will benefit from my experience, and you can pick up the phone and talk to me when you need to.”

Over the two years I was with him these plans paid big dividends and he leaves the company in a much healthier state than when he joined.

In the time we spent together, I always felt confident that he would deliver the plans he prepared, regardless of the economic context. I am sure I learned from his attention to details and his willingness to share his knowledge.
