About Us

Dedicated to the management of Finance

Mark Nicholls set up Tectona to provide Part Time Finance Directors to improve the performance of businesses, particularly owner-managed and high growth companies.  We do this by improving their financial management pragmatically, consistently over time, and demonstrably through better results.

Our friendly, personable service gives you a new business partner (without sharing the equity) of the calibre you need to move the business forward.

By focusing exclusively on owner-managed businesses turning over £1 to 20 million, we can deliver the right solutions first time, every time, and, quite simply, be the best in that sector.

Whether you want to improve cash flow, financial control, financial systems and procedures or find funding, we can help.  Our FDs have a wealth of practice experience to help you achieve your aims more quickly.

Tectona is here to help you define your priorities; and, if appropriate, we can then match you for a “chemistry session” with one of our team.

Why “Tectona”?

The oldest known Tectona Grandis (what we call teak) is over 1,500 years old, and found in Thailand, and so why “Tectona”?

We are committed to growing a business that is enduring, robust, and that you can be sure of.

We also want our business, like your business, to be expanding, flexible and responsive to changing environments. In other words, sustainable.

But, above all, we want Tectona to be useful – productive, valued and valuable – and that’s exactly what teak is. Many products for many applications, yet it is always teak.
