Our story

Improving and building businesses

team photo

Emerson Nash was set up to help SME and mid-sized business owners & managers grow their business in a sustainable way, get better performance from their businesses, and ultimately better serve the many stakeholders of those businesses.

In the broadest context, businesses and organisations form a very large and important role in our communities. Businesses provide employment, products & services, opportunities to learn and develop, social interaction, among many other benefits.

The better these companies become at what they do and how they interact with the 

communities around them, the better off everyone involved becomes – owners, employees, families, customers, suppliers, local communities & public services.

Emerson Nash contributes by forming win-win partnerships to help build great businesses in a fair and ethical way.

Our team Small team, mighty experience

Our team have all built their careers as line managers and leaders within businesses rather than as external advisers. Everyone has achieved a lot in their careers, built an impressive range of skills and experience, and are keen to help business leaders get the best out of the businesses that they manage. We are entrepreneurial, very commercially focused, and have worked in team management roles as well as being external business partners.
