About Luke

I'm an experienced founder, investor, and advisor. Looking for NED roles to add to my portfolio.

I've started my own businesses in the social enterprise, consulting and the digital marketing sectors. In 2015 I self-funded a principal private investment group, with partners in the UK, South Africa and Australia specializing in consolidation deals focused mainly on the US, UK, and Australia markets and working on transactions as varied as mining, agriculture and healthcare. I've been an advisor/mentor for the last 10 years helping founders of high growth online businesses like SaaS (Software As A Service), digital marketing agencies and e-commerce businesses to build scalable and valuable businesses they can sell.

I'm currently a partner in Digital Acquisitions a boutique advisory and brokerage based in the United States. I work remotely from a satellite office in the UK.

Unlike many corporate executives, my experience of business has been through running my own and working closely with the owners and CEOs of businesses. I've experienced both the dizzy heights of when things are going to plan and I've also felt the pain of when things are going horribly wrong.

My key strengths include sales and marketing, mergers and acquisitions, business growth and strategy, valuation, hiring, coaching and leading high-performance people and teams.

Client Testimonials:

"I was introduced to Luke Havard in 2016 when I was looking for innovative ways to scale my E-commerce business. Before working with Luke I worked really hard building a well-established brand in the Netherlands, growing my business from zero to €12,000,000 in annual sales in just 6 years. After a short time of talking with Luke, I knew that he could help me to transform the way that I think about my business so in May 2017 we started working together. Over the last few months, Luke has helped me design a growth strategy using mergers and acquisitions that I believe can help me scale to €50,000,000+ in annual sales. If you’re serious about growing your business, I highly recommend you do whatever it takes to work with Luke Havard."
Demian Beenakker - Cofounder of STOQ.COM

"Luke's coaching services have proven to be an invaluable asset to my continued success. He consistently offers an insightful depth of perspective while providing meaningful feedback. Luke is approachable, trustworthy and real. I recommend his services to anyone seeking honest and constructive growth opportunities. 
Kristin Delwo - President & CEO of Stacks Inc


“I knew that if I could just get just one or two strategies from this then I knew the investment would be totally worth it. Well, I got my investment back after going through the first coaching session. But it didn’t end there... after going through this week's coaching session we looked at exit strategies and I’m confident that the information in this that Luke shared with me will be easily worth 7 figures in value to me.” Travis Sago - Serial Entrepreneur

"Luke and I have been working together for a considerable time and during the course of our relationship, I have found his approach and insights incredibly valuable. Luke has developed his coaching and mentoring skills in order to deliver direct and sometimes challenging insights using crafted communication skills and techniques which drive positive behaviours which in turn lead to positive business and life outcomes. This is an incredible skill which I believe is a gift, which he has honed and sharpened rather than a skill which has been learned."

Paul Callow - Chief Executive Officer at Cartridge World UK
