Julian Wilson

Director/Owner, Matt Black Systems

Julian Wilson: Director at MattBlack Systems, an SME in the Aerospace and Defence sector based in Poole, Dorset.

The last ten years has seen radical changes in this SME with the introduction of a truly innovative organisational structure built from first principals by the Directors at MBS.  Their unique approach starts with each person in the organisation having a P&L Account and Balance Sheet tracking their individual progress, and most importantly dictating the rewards they receive. Every aspect of the business has been subject to a radical overhaul- not only as individual parts but also as an interconnected whole. Productivity has risen by 300%, costs have fallen by 50% and pay has more than tripled. The company is growing in both turnover and profit in this particularly challenging economic environment through diversification and increasing export sales.
