About Mike Allen

Business Doctor for Solihull, Mike Allen has over 30 years’ experience working in leadership roles for a variety of companies both small and large.

Born and raised in the Lake District, Mike’s first degree was in Chemical Engineering from Leeds University. He could never claim to be a great engineer, but this did lead to 10 years with Cadbury in Bournville and around the world. It also led to developing his commercial skills, and he was part of the senior team at Camelot that set up The National Lottery.

Mike also spent 10 years working in the education technology sector – a role focusing on improving the life chances of young people across the UK and one that he found extremely rewarding.

It was while running Croner Group, who provide HR and legal support to SME’s, that Mike discovered his passion for helping small businesses.

Recently, he set up Arco Professional Safety Services, bringing together three smaller companies for Arco Ltd, the family-run safety supplies group. It was a further example of Mike doing what he does best – using his vast business and leadership experience to help people see their vision and achieve extraordinary things.

A keen gardener, you’ll often find Mike working in his kitchen garden, enjoying a pint of decent ale at his local, or travelling round the country on his motorbike.
