Paddy Limb started in business aged 19, ‘with a van and no plan.’ He continued to develop and grow this business up to a five vehicle light haulage operation, by his own admission making all the classic small business owner mistakes and learning some painful lessons.
He then joined a major PLC motor group as a commercial vehicle salesmen and was immediately placed on the management fast track programme. Paddy quickly went on to become the youngest dealer principal in the Mercedes Benz network, benefiting from the luxury vehicle manufacturer’s senior management training in the UK and Germany.
In 2007, along with three colleagues, Paddy completed a management buyout of a Volvo truck dealership group. The new team took an already successful business and set about growing it significantly.
Three years later, the business partners acquired a second under-performing territory and turned it into significant profit, taking the combined group business to 23 locations, 750 staff and £180m turnover. They had on their hands, the largest and most profitable independent Volvo truck dealership group in Europe, with the highest customer satisfaction score for large truck dealers. Following a health scare Paddy decided to leave the company to facilitate a full recovery.
He said: “When I sold my interest in this company and left the business, the greatest satisfaction I got was the notes from people who worked for me, thanking me for the support and guidance I had given them both personally and professionally.
“I have run my own one man band business with little or no spare resources and I have also been a partner in a £180 million turnover company. It is this broad range of experience that I believe helps me to have empathy with SME owners. This is because I have been there and I understand the challenges they face and how to overcome them.
“Business Doctors allows me to use the skills and experience I have gained over the years to support small and medium sized business owners to get their businesses working for them.
