About

Dave Breith

Born in Amersham, Buckinghamshire August 1969. I was the youngest of 12 Children (Yes 12 Children!) and grew up in a small village called Little Missenden in our family Council house. I now live in Beaconsfield, have moved around a little but have always lived in Bucks, a County I am very proud of and the people within it. My Father was Romanian, my Mother was half Italian/half British and looking up my ancestry I am told our family originated from Scotland. I know !!!.

I absolutely adore my four Children (Ashley, Jack, Georgia and Michael), not forgetting my beautiful wife Claire. We are surrounded by animals, 2 dogs, (Jelly and Izzy) two Rabbits, (Fudge and Muffin) and three Horses (Jigsaw, Blaze and Molly).

Being an entrepreneur has always been in me, I have limited memories of working for anyone and have done my own thing all my life, which, I am pleased to say has been very good to me, I have bought and sold more than 35 business with a value in excess of £35m which have been attributable to an enterprise value exceeding £200m. I have also made quite a few other people millionaires as well that have surrounded me along the way.

My life is now about giving back, giving back to budding entrepreneurs, giving back to businesses in trouble and giving back to help companies grow. I am very lucky that I am still surrounded by very talented and like-minded people that have been with me, or I have known for a long time, with them we are able to truly offer the expertise, with that personal touch that an organisation needs and other often forget.

“Entrepreneurs are different. We stand out from the crowd.”
