Having started as a trainee recruitment consultant in 1993, Tony managed to slowly work his way through every rank to eventually become a non-executive director in 2002.
From that point he headed an MBO (management buyout) with the support of bank funds and private equity funding in 2007. Since then Templine have evolved into a wider group (Siamo Group) and now turnover in excess of £85m per annum from 44 UK locations.
Siamo now incorporates different services, brands and businesses to the core blue collar temporary brand (Templine). These include commercial recruitment services, permanent placement solutions and ESFA and Apprenticeship Levy funded training.
He has also set up a charity to cure diabetes after very sadly losing his son to the disease.
