About Robert Warner

My executive experience can be summarized as follows:


  • With a leading Building Design Group, which floated (full listing) in 1988 when I was Company Secretary.  Appointed Finance Director in 1992, I played a leading management role through the early 1990’s recession, including a significant re-financing in 1995.  Thereafter I was in charge of corporate development and the group expanded successfully across 10 European countries, by way of acquisition, joint venture and start-up.


  • Founded FD on tap. Initial clients covered a variety of sectors: computer software; digital printing and reprographics; travel agency; architects; investment management.


  • Finance Director of an investment management start-up, which was FCA-regulated and grew to a peak of over £7billion of assets under management.

My non-executive experience includes:


  • Audit committee chairman of listed property investment group and REIT, with assets of over £3 billion at its peak and market cap of £350 million.

1993 to date

  • Non-executive director of leading UK development planning consultancy, with over 220 staff and eight offices.
