Deborah Labbate

After selling the business in 1993, and having a career break to start a family, Deborah was appointed a Partner in a vehicle refinishing business taking the role of part time Financial Director, a position she held until recently when she was the orchestrator of a successful exit.

Deborah learned very early on in her business life that the most vital aspect of being able to run a business is actually feeling confident to make the everyday decisions that accompany being ‘The Boss’, be that the Owner/Manager, the MD or anyone responsible for leading a team. With a passion for people, seeing them grow and their businesses thrive Deborah combines a wealth of experience with an understanding of the challenges facing business owners.

Over the last 8 years Deborah has worked with SMEs and individuals within those companies splitting her time between private clients and contracts with various organisations including a short contract with Nottinghamshire Police.
