Our People
Secantor was established in 2001 by Gordon Waine after he felt that support for SME’s was lacking in the industry. Secantor was to thrive as a leader in innovative business support services that would inject business expertise into the heart of any organisation that wanted it.

With a well thought out regional structure that allowed Secantor to provide business support services across England, Wales and Scotland we have grown over the years to offer leading business support services. With refining, restructuring, analysing and testing we have literally fine-tuned our services to offer you the leading service available. Working with Secantor gives you direct access to the shared knowledge and expertise of our team of proven business leaders. Through our Regional Directors, we will co-ordinate and deliver quality and continuity of support when you need it and on a basis that is tailored to work for you.

The service that Secantor offers is truly unique. We bring expertise of big business to smaller companies and help you to achieve the results and goals that you have probably never imagined. We have helped many businesses that have been struggling and brought them back to profit and we help ambitious companies grow daily. Helping across your business we ensure that you become more recognised as a brand and offer better perceived value to your clients. Building your company's brand and value is exactly what we do.

Our People Credentials and Secantor Values

People Credentials

Our Senior Associates and Associates are all financially qualified finance directors and have at least seven years commercial and /or industrial experience. Usually, much of this experience is with larger companies enabling them to understand the structures and systems that are required for company growth. All of our associates have passed our Recruitment Assessment and Accreditation (RAA) process. Not only does this ensure that they are technically competent, and exhibit the Secantor values, but also ensures that they endorse the new team working concept, that stands us apart. This enables our clients to benefit from the knowledge of all of our people. This is embodied in our “client care” program where our regional directors ensure that the clients’ priorities are being met.

Secantor Values

The success of Secantor is attributed in no small part to the values embedded by its founder Gordon Waine.

Integrity - Truth, openness and the absence of ‘spin’ are the foundations of mutual trust and respect. We apply these principles to the way we interact with our clients, with one another, and with all with whom we deal.

Relationships - Every client is different and each one is a special relationship. We respect the position of the owners and members of the client’s team. We aim to be a member of the team, seeking to add value in support of clearly identified and agreed objectives. The Secantor FD will be someone with whom members of the client’s management team can share thoughts and ideas and he or she will always be accessible.

Expertise - Each business requires different levels and types of expertise. The role of the Secantor FD is to assess just what level of input is appropriate to meet client objectives. He or she will personally deliver excellent professional input and have access to additional specialist expertise if required at any stage.

Community - Secantor is an association of like-minded individuals who are all highly experienced business people and who want to use their accumulated wisdom to benefit their local and regional business community. We care about the success of all our clients and their contribution to an increase in healthy economic activity at every level. Reputation - Great work builds a great reputation. Ensuring that Secantor is well known for delivering excellence creates a virtuous circle where the best people want to join us and ambitious businesses want to grow with us.
