Experience:

His experience in the manufacturing sector has been built up over many years whilst advising a variety of companies in that sector. That advice has covered a wide spectrum of issues with a particular focus on transactional work and deals include the multi-million pound sale of MKW Engineering Group, the sale of Hydram Engineering and the sale of Whiteley Murphy Group.

Hugh says it is has been his Christian faith and his wife’s unwavering support that has inspired him to do so much over the past 35 years.  But as if all of those commitments weren’t enough to have kept him occupied, Hugh also loves gardening and running marathons. Lots of marathons. And to date you could have spotted him pounding the streets of cities such as Dubai, Edinburgh, Rome, Dublin and Cape Town.
