Meet the team

Stuart Reed

Owner/ Investor

I have a eye for investing in businesses and property with a desire to see small businesses thrive through my development.

I have owned my own businesses for decades and enjoy mentoring others in the art of tranforming SME businesses, sharing the knowledge I’ve learnt from my mentors.

When I get the chance to have downtime, I enjoy spending time with my life partner and dogs, as well as sailing.

Suzie French

Business Acquisition Partner

I am passionate about hair and beauty and seeing SALONS succeed through GROWTH and TRAINING.

I am a qualified Hairdressing Lecturer, Assessor, Internal Quality Assessor and Business Owner. Over the years I have built strong relationships with students, peers, senior leaders & salon owners. As well as an external IQA for multiple Academies and Colleges I am trained to work within the hair and beauty industry with both ladies and gentlemen. This keeps me up to date with fashion and the traditional ways of Hairdressing, Barbering and Beauty.

In my spare time I love to spend time with my family and my loyal pooch. I compete regularly in marathons, raising money for a charity very close to my heart, St Richards Hospice.

My role within Chamberlain’s H&B is to listen and understand the current and past challenges of business owners and give them the opportunity to have a meeting to discuss the next stages of a potential sale.

I also have 4 years previous experience within Human Resources where I am CIPD Level 3, HR Support Level 3 and Business Administration Level 2 qualified. I use this knowledge to support our businesses and our staff.

In my spare time I enjoy the gym, specifically weight training and boxing.

Claire Tolladay

Marketing Manager

I revil in marketing and seeing businesses succeed and grow through the art. I have joined the team to help support managers of salons within the Chamberlain group, maintain their message and protect the group brand and ethos.

It is fair to say that I enjoy a vino or two at the weekends and spending time with friends and family. Walking has become a new pleasure and a weekend would not be complete without a few country miles.
