Our Team

Richard Naylor

“Running your own business comes with many different challenges. Having a great idea and taking it to market is just one part of business life, but it is easy to become side tracked by the inward facing aspects of the business. Finances, HR, regulation and what seems an endless number of tasks all take up valuable time that could be used to build your client base and drive growth.

I have worked with many people who just need a little outside help to get them back on track and this is why we set up QCL, because we can offer that help in the background to build your business, or deliver that project, without the need for expensive long term costs”

Richard is an experienced Finance and Operations Director and for the last 20 years he has worked both in the UK and spent several years working overseas, responsible for offices in several different jurisdictions. He is a Chartered Management Accountant (FCMA) by trade but specialises in all aspects of Operations; business growth and turnaround.

Patrick Shone

“There are two themes that continue to resonate for me as the years and projects pass. Communication and Trust are broad topics but form the basis for much that is successful within the world of IT and Software Development. 

I believe trust is the bedrock upon which the most successful business relationships are built and particularly in IT where things can move quickly, being able to rely on advice about which technologies to adopt and when gives your business a true advantage.”
