Somerset businessman joins Business Doctors

Seasoned businessman Raphael Fiorentino has joined forces with the national SME support network Business Doctors, bringing his unique skills and experiences to the table.

Raphael will be operating his new business, Business Doctors Somerset, from rural Somerset, his home county. In this venture, he will be collaborating with two other established Business Doctors, Richard Tidswell (Avon & Somerset) and Paul Neck (South West), to provide comprehensive support to SMEs in the region.

Raphael has previously worked as a chemical engineer, strategy consultant, investment manager and, most recently, a fintech entrepreneur.

He said: “As a business “doctor”, one of the “procedures” I most look forward to is to deliver business valuation “booster shots” – working with SMEs on building up well ahead of time the business fitness that will ultimately lead to their smooth exit at the desired price.”

Managing director and co-founder, Matthew Levington, added: “We are delighted to welcome Raphael to our close-knit network. He certainly has the experience we seek in a Business Doctor, and he is ready to ditch his corporate identity and roll his sleeves up to help others.”

Raphael can be contacted here.

Business Doctors launched in the Northwest of England in 2004 and now has offices in Bulgaria, Belgium, India, Republic of Ireland, Malta, Myanmar, Portugal and South Africa.
