Kevin R Smith is the founder and CEO of BOOM & Partners and, after a career working for banks, he has run his own business and finance consultancy firm for 26 years.
With a long and varied career in business and finance he has become increasingly aware of the great number of early stage and mid-sized businesses that have a great story but are missing some vital parts of the jigsaw to make them achieve their true potential.
Those missing pieces are inevitably gaps in knowledge or experience in certain areas, or access to the right people. In his normal business life and in his roles as a mentor at Cass Business School and as both a general mentor and a fintech mentor at the UK’s largest Entrepreneur Accelerator he decided that he was very well placed to help such businesses achieve their goals.
Tapping into his own entrepreneurial spirit led him to establish BOOM & Partners. His experience in this sector has led him to write numerous published articles on topics that are common concerns for business owners and directors. Whilst having a broad experience in all sectors, in recent years he has become increasingly involved in Fintech and Women in Business.
