Jan McDermott & Co Client Case Study - Innov8 Safety Solutions


Alan Robson, founder of Innov8 Safety Solutions in Wirral, has sold his business to Gateshead-based Lucion Environmental for an undisclosed sum.

Alan established his consultancy in 2007 when, as a start-up business, he also first became a client of Jan McDermott and Co Chartered Accountants.

Jan McDermott worked closely with the business to manage its growth and develop the business at every financial stage as well as every business milestone working as the virtual Financial Director for the company as well as also helping Alan with the recent sale of the company.

Innov8 provides construction design management services, site safety advice and associated training across the UK.

Alan said: “I first appointed Jan McDermott in 2007 when I set up Innov8 Safety Solutions Ltd. Initially the focus for the company was on bookkeeping and accounts, however, I soon realised that I needed more advice in terms of financial matters, as well more strategic support to help me with the growth and development of my business.

“Over that time, through our monthly board meetings, as well as regular telephone contact Jan McDermott has acted not only as my personal and company accountant, but as finance director for

the business.

“The company became the first person I called to discuss a wide range of business issues with,

financial matters of course but also personal, operational and even marketing matters.

“The firm has continued to go over and above my expectations to deliver high quality,

exceptional and valuable advice and I know that my business has benefited as a direct result

of Jan McDermott’s  involvement.

“Thank you for your input and expertise so far and I look forward to our continuing, mutually

successful relationship.”
