Jeremy Bowen Rees
MBA | BSc Hons
I started my consultancy career in 1992 in England and returned to my origins in SW Wales in 1997 where I set up the forerunner to Landsker. I established Landsker in 2001 and have been delighted that it has steadily grown to be regarded as a professional business and support consultancy.
I have worked with many small and large SME’s in Wales advising on a wide range of pre and post start situations. I tend to lead on strategy and business planning for organisations and frequently advise to help see the ‘big picture’. This often entails undertaking feasibility studies and options analysis. As I have worked with many organisations I also advise on a wide range of operational matters such as, sales and marketing, customer care and other processes and procedures.
I maintain the view that business should be simple and straightforward so I am no ‘rocket scientist’. I tend to adopt a dual approach to my work. At one level I am happy working at the ‘coal face’ ensuring that the job is done and at another I offer a more independent and strategic view helping organisations make the right business decisions. I am also reasonably provocative, but in a positive way and work hard to help all of our clients prosper.
I attended Greenhill School in Tenby and after A levels attended University College Cardiff where I graduated with a BSc Hons Institutional Management (food science related). I then worked as a graduate trainee with Wendy’s in London, the American fast-food company, and after three years was managing their busiest and largest restaurant on The Strand. Realizing that I was always working when all of my friends were at leisure I joined a City firm, Chase Personnel, as a trainee recruitment consultant and after three years became National Sales Director.
I started my consultancy career proper in 1992 with a small Berkshire based consultancy advising on/working with change management for many blue chip firms. To prevent myself becoming obsolete I did an MBA in Berkshire and with the arrival of children, development of the internet and changes in corporate culture I returned to what I think is the right side of the Severn Bridge in 1997, and the rest as they say is history!
I love my job as MD at Landsker and feel fortunate to work with people who are really capable, decent and have many skills that I do not. At work we often have a good laugh, (usually at my intolerance with ICT (I am quicker than our broadband) or poor service from big organisations.)
