Entrepreneur In Residence at Connect Gazelles
Kevin Parkin led an MBO in 2006 when Davy Markham had a turnover of £10.5m and was loss making to the tune of £2.4m and turned it round to sales of £21m and a profit of £1.2m which was sold in 2011 with the investors making a return of 10 times. This involved creating a new strategy of open management styles, effective internal communications, on time deliveries, becoming customer focused, reinstating the apprentice training scheme and making health and safety the number one business priority.

He is the founder of Parkin Limited, the professional management and business Turnaround Company. He has multi-disciplined academic qualifications in Engineering, Marketing and Accountancy supported by twenty-five years of manufacturing experience at board level.
