Michelle Mone mentee backs ‘Entrepreneur Tsar’ appointment PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 14 August 2015

Lynne Darcey Quigley, Managing Director and Owner of leading Commercial Debt Recovery company, Darcey Quigley & Co has given her backing to Michelle Mone’s appointment as the Government’s new ‘Entrepreneur Tsar’.

Lynne was recently selected to attend an exclusive mentor weekend with the UK’s most successful businesswoman at her London Penthouse and is one of only 100 entrepreneurs Michelle currently mentors around the world.
A distinguished and respected figure in Credit Management and Commercial Debt Recovery for 21 years, Lynne has taken inspiration from Michelle’s rise to the top in a cutthroat industry and since the mentor weekend has grown to know Michelle on both a business and personal level.
Commenting on Michelle’s appointment as the Government’s new ‘Entrepreneur Tsar’, Lynne said: “My respect and admiration for Michelle has grown even more since I spent time in her company as her mentee, learning more about her story and discussing common business challenges. She is an inspirational mother and businesswoman and in my opinion has all the qualities and experience to make a significant contribution to supporting economic growth in the country, helping to revitalise small British business and to encourage young entrepreneurs from disadvantaged backgrounds to go into business on their own.

"Her business success is well known. She is a real success story, having been brought up in an impoverished part of Glasgow, leaving school at the age of 15 with no qualifications, being made redundant at 24 years old and then 6 weeks later had the idea for the Ultimo brand, which she developed into a successful multi-million pound business.
"Michelle is the perfect candidate to lead this review and I have absolutely no doubts she will make a success of her new role. She is a natural coach and mentor. I wish her the very best of luck.”
Following the mentor weekend, Michelle said: "Lynne is an incredible mother and entrepreneur, I can't wait to see Lynne grow her company to the next level."
Lynne founded Darcey Quigley & Co in 2007 and over the last 9 years the company has grown its multi million pound turnover through strong and significant growth to become established as the UK's market leading commercial and international debt recovery business. The company boasts an industry leading success rate of 93% for its clients and prides itself on offering its clients a first class professional risk free service.
