Chris Dowling lives in Uckfield, East Sussex and has been a professional business mentor and adviser for 5 years. His business background is in the print and graphics industry where he owned and ran a family business with his brother for 30 years. The business was a typical SME, operating in a highly competitive and demanding market. As with the owners of all SMEs, Chris dealt with all aspects of the business, developing a breadth of experience – he ‘has been there and done it’. Despite his multi-tasking, his particular responsibility was sales and marketing and customer contact and development. Times changed, the market changed and Chris now uses his wide-ranging business experience to mentor and support both start-ups and established businesses.
Chris was appointed as a director of the ABM in October 2019 and is responsible for developing the ABM’s external partnerships. He is also Regional Head for the South East.Get in touch with Chris via [email protected]
