In 2002 I decided I wanted to put everything I had learned in to practise and moved back North from London to buy a Xerox dealership - Dex. When I bought the business (with my partner Mike Sandell) it employed about 30 people and had very little IT infrastructure or people or process management! The business turned over circa £4m with a PBT of circa £300k. Over the next 6 years we built up to a £10m t/o business employing 70 people with a PBT of £800k and won numerous awards from Xerox. We invested in IT, we built management processes and developed lots of good people.
