William McMillan

William joined Shirlaws in 2014, after 10 years in Corporate Manufacturing and over 25 years running his own Automotive Retail Dealership. 

William works with entrepreneurs and enterprises that are looking for Growth or are looking at ways of re-structuring their existing business to move to the next level in their business cycle. His experience in ‘change’ management in the field of Corporate Manufacturing and retail SME business enables him to coach and mentor his clients through challenging conditions, focusing and supporting on the commercial and the self-development needs of the business owner and senior management.

William’s Corporate career began with IBM UK Manufacturing in management accountancy; he spent 3 years on international assignment working in Corporate HQ in Paris, where he gained experience of their European manufacturing locations in the field of ‘best practice management ‘ within operational functions including, Finance, Purchasing, Production Control and Scheduling.

Understanding the structure and organisation of corporate management has proved invaluable to William, enabling him to implement these acquired skill levels, when engaging with clients looking to make changes within their own business.  

William decided to steer his career in a different direction and joined his successful family automotive retail business that was rapidly expanding to multi-franchised sites. He has run his own business as Managing Director, operating with Renault and Nissan franchises and is acutely aware of the pressures and responsibilities of such duties.

Growing and exiting his own successful enterprise was indeed a learning process and he is able to use this experience with clients who are considering sale or succession of their business.

William holds a BA in Business Management.
