"Stephen has been a firm and inspiring chairman of our UK start up clean tech business for 4 years, and assisted us in raising money, corporate governance and OEM/Tier 1 negotiations. I would strongly recommend his Board skills. He is also a very nice guy to work with."
I’ve worked with Stephen Kimbell since setting up our first geophysical consultancy business in 1986. His advice then was as invaluable as it is now and it is always calm, well thought out and, above all, pragmatic. So valued was Stephen’s input in the early days of our new company that we asked him to be a non-executive director of the company. Like all growing businesses we had intermittent need for legal help and whether it was contract negotiations or a dispute with another company Stephen’s help and advice was always sought first as it invariably lead us towards a sensible solution that didn’t involve spending a lot of money on legal fees. Stephen was our guide through the set-up of our second geophysical company and also through the sale of our first company. As middle aged semi-retirement beckoned I decided to set up a small consultancy a few years ago, Stephen was again my first port of call for advice. For me, Stephen’s expertise and advice have stood the test of time and there have been many occasions when we have looked back and thought “we’re glad we did it Stephen’s way”. In 27 years of working with Stephen Kimbell he has become my most trusted advisor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Stephen has been on our Board now for 4 years and has proved to be invaluable with his objective advice during this time. We find him to be both logical and innovative with his approach and look forward to further success together.
Any assistance that I have required over the last 30 years plus has never been too much trouble for Stephen Kimbell. Constantly a steady hand on the tiller. Always a thorough gentleman and a true friend.
We employed Stephen to advise on our first M&A transaction. We found him to be very helpful in all respects and would recommend him to others.
Stephen is a very competent and professional person who keeps things simple and uncomplicated. He has particularly good negotiation/people skills and his legal background is invaluable.
Stephen is not only entrepreneurial and focused but also incredibly measured and sensible. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen and working with him again.
Stephen helped my business become sharper, more focussed, more productive, and more cost effective. His input was absolutely invaluable.
