Director, Fund Raising
Dom now enjoys an entrepreneurial and pluralist career – ranging from online start-ups, angel-investment and the provision of advisory/mentoring services (including NED support) to growing companies. Dom is also the author of five guides on the topic of entrepreneurship specifically targeted at current, and aspirant, business leaders of professional service businesses (www.dommoorhouse.com).
Previously, Dom founded Moorhouse, growing it from singleton start-up in 2004 to a c. £20m (valuation) business in 2008 when it was sold to BT as part of a deliberate build-to-sale, five-year strategy. Dom subsequently stayed on to lead the firm’s continued success – growing it to a c. £14m/annum revenue business at the time of handing over the MD reins in 2011. Moorhouse continues to thrive as one of the most respected business transformation companies in the UK, with c. 100 staff, serving multiple premier/global clients.
Dom is a former Royal Marines Officer (serving an 8-year commission). He has a first-class computing degree, an MBA and programme management accreditation (PMP, Prince2, MSP). He is a Chartered Director and a Fellow of both the Institute of Management Consultancy (CMC qualified) and the Association of Project Management (APM).
Outside of work, Dom shares the demands, with his wife Roz, of parenting three very active, growing children. With what little residual time there is remaining, Dom studies (currently a Philosophy Politics Economics degree with Open University) and mentors with the Prince’s Trust. He also tries desperately hard to hang onto a zest for an active, outdoor life (which has in the past included being a paragliding pilot, Zambezi white water raft guide, endurance canoeist, climber and expeditioner).
