Bert Morris – Former Deputy Group Chief Executive of NatWest and Former Chairman of Lorien plc

I have known George since 1985.  He carried out a large amount of consultancy work for the bank over some ten years.  He developed the business and information systems strategies that led to a significant change of focus – from customer account to customer relationship.

Based on his record I recruited George to head up Lorien Consulting when I became Executive Chairman of Lorien plc.  His job was to turn round a loss making consultancy and sell it.  He took it to the top 10% of consultancies by profitability and sold it in a trade sale, for a price well ahead of our expectations.

His defining characteristics are intelligence, integrity and determination.
