European Small Business Alliance
I am the President of the European Small Business Alliance which represents over 1 million small and micro businesses from across Europe and is based in Brussels. in the past I have been Chairman of the UK Federation of Small Businesses Environment and Energy Policy Unit and the EU &International Affairs Policy Unit. I also sit on the Executive Board of the Flock Association of Europe. My own business, Qualplast Ltd, was founded in 1977, currently employs 23 people, and is the UK’s premier supplier of flock finishes to the automotive industry in the UK; it is headquartered in Birmingham in the heart of England. My dual role of entrepreneur as well as policy executive enables me to identify potential regulatory obstructions to small business at an early stage and thus lobby on behalf of small and micro businesses.
