Since Cavendish Management Resources established its unique investor base, back in 1984, it has enjoyed substantial growth and now comprises several hundred private investors, and a similar number of senior executives. This combination of wide ranging executive expertise and private investments funds provides an exceptional support base for small to medium-sized businesses.

CMRs executives are all senior managers with many years experience of business at the sharp end.

The diversity of industries and disciplines in which these executives have expertise, enables CMR to provide support to companies in every market sector.
