Jeremy Harbour - Owns 13 firms and raised a £150m fund for acquisitions
Share Share

Name: Jeremy Harbour Nationality: British Companies run: Oasis Trading, Unity Group (incorporating Unity IT, Unity Financial Outsourcing, Net Technical, Transphorm, Transphorm Jobs, Jeremy Harbour Tips, Pout Models, Sportz Academy, The London Centre of Contemporary Music, Cheeky Beach, Touchpoint) Jeremy has started and run many enterprises since starting a trading business at the age of 14 called Oasis Trading. Jeremy has extensive experience in the business services sectors. He has a good grasp of accounts and has direct experience in franchising, acquisitions, mergers, strategic partnerships, joint ventures, fundraising and partial exit in his career so far. Jeremy founded Unity in 1998 as a telecoms company, he added IT through acquisition in 2003, since then he set about creating a group of businesses through either joint venture or acquisition that would become the Unity family of businesses. The Unity Family now employs around 120 people and revenues at a run rate of £9.5m, and is growing exponentially through acquisition and merger. Jeremy has also suffered set back, an amusement arcade he owned in 1992 failed and had to be closed and more recently V&J Harbour Ltd which traded as Unity a telecoms business suffered an insolvency in April 2006. These experiences have proved incredibly valuable lessons, and it is a testimony to his resolve and the team around him that Unity is where it is today despite such set backs. Jeremy's 20+ years experience enables him to focus on his passion for business start-up and development as well as growing his expanding Unity Group of businesses through acquisitions and business turnaround. Jeremy has also written articles in the Sharp Edge Magazine, Sunday Telegraph and Mens Health on the subject of entrepreneurship.
