What our clients say

Alan Walters- Timpack

"We engaged Ralph for 8 months as our acting CFO to allow our Finance Manager to focus on our ERP implementation and reporting.   

Ralph got up to speed quickly with our business model, systems, and processes.  He provided new insights into our business through his management, financial analysis and development of new reports.  He communicated well with our branch managers who found him very approachable, helpful and knowledgeable.   He became a trusted member of our executive team in the short time he was with us.  I would not hesitate to use Ralph again should the need arise and would recommend him to other businesses."

Steve Daly- SD European

"As a company that has grown through the many years of business without formal training, it was a breath of fresh air to have Ralph join our company as an advisor and virtual COO. His in depth skill set and common sense approach to modern business has helped us develop a new direction for SD European.

Ralph’s mentoring and guidance with our senior management team has been invaluable in growing their business knowledge and in turn increasing company turnover.

I can recommend Ralph with confidence to whomever he may work with knowing, from our experience that he gets the job done with professionalism and with enthusiasm."

Tom Bennett- Hillcrest Pharmacy

"Exceptional Financial and Business Support from R & R Blackburn:

My business was wrestling with an extremely challenging debt repayment schedule and my Business Banker was indicating that they were unlikely to continue to support my business.  

After a casual conversation with Ralph Blackburn about my financial situation he mentioned that he had past experience supporting businesses through the types of challenges my business was having and would be keen to work with me.    

During my meeting with Ralph he quickly grasped the details and essence of my business and was able to structure a lending proposal that was accepted by another Banking partner.  Since then Ralph has continued to work directly with me to assist with the reporting requirements of our new Banking partner and to help me as a business owner to maintain the momentum of our development and ensure that the financial lending criteria continue to be maintained.  Ralph reliably delivers what he says he does.

I have recommended Ralph’s services to many people and will continue to do so.  His experience, personality and highly relational approach to his work make him a valuable asset to my business, and I consider him a trustworthy ally who gives me advice on financial, employment and other operational matters. He is a Financial Controller Extraordinaire."

Aaron Smith- Keith Andrews Trucks

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Ralph for the past 10 months, he has worked within Keith Andrews Trucks on a contract basis in a couple of capacities, primarily Interim Dealer Principal – Manukau.  Ralph is a dedicated and proven leader with a broad commercial skillset, I wouldn’t hesitate to re-engage Ralph to assist our business should the opportunity present."
