The team

Get to know Mercia

We know that a company is built on its people and there’s no denying that our team is passionate about the regions, but more importantly, your business ambitions.

You will have already met or spoken to some of our people, but if want to introduce yourself to anyone on the Mercia team, head over to the #OneMercia page – we look forward to meeting you.

100 day plan

This is a joint planning effort between Mercia, the management team and board members to agree to and align on a strategy to grow the business. It is an opportunity for all parties to gain clarity over any concerns raised by the Fund, key shareholders and/or management.

The 100 day plan is essential as it lays out the foundation and actions needed to implement a value creation plan, feedback loop from customers and establish the right approach to create a stable revenue stream for the business.

Support and grow

Head of Portfolio Resourcing, Lisa Ward, dedicates her time to continuously building and developing Mercia’s external network of non-executive directors and business leaders who we can introduce to our portfolio, supporting our CEOs and ensuring businesses are well-positioned to network and influence across the business community.

You can contact Lisa at Lisa.Ward@mercia.co.uk
