Speaker – Alistair Waite

Alastair was born in Spennymoor and is a qualified accountant, throughout his career Alistair has been involved in a wide variety of businesses and sectors.

He started his early career in retail with Safeway based in London and was part of a small team responsible for the finance and administration for over 650 stores. He gave up a highly paid job to relocate back to his native North East and complete his accountancy qualification.

Things didn’t work out as planned and he was soon juggling his accountancy studies with his appointment as Finance Director for two Durham-based businesses: Altec Engineering Limited of which he is now the major shareholder and Bede Group which he helped grow from University spin-out to stock market floatation.

Alastair is experienced in start-ups, scale-ups, mergers/acquisitions and disposals as well as project managing major capital expenditure projects.He is a serial investor in a number of other successful businesses: Sound Training (Literacy), EvaluAgent (Software), ION (Salesforce Consultancy), Tetrad (Recruitment) and a host of others.

He is proud to be a Patron and Trustee, and active fundraiser, for ‘The Teesside Charity’ which has raised £3m in 8 years to support some of the most disadvantaged people in our region.

We look forward to a very interesting presentation.
