In 2001 Tony Thornton our Technical Director co-founded CFS along with Nuala Heaney.
We asked Tony, what gave him the idea to start one of the first Companies House approved company formation agents?
“I had extensive experience in electronic programming and also incorporating companies by paper, so it seemed obvious to pull these two skills together and by doing this I created one of the first web based solutions for incorporating companies electronically. This was unique as you didn’t need to buy expensive software from us you could just start incorporating quickly, easily and on a pay as you go system.”
Tony is closely involved in the business, so we asked him what he likes to do to unwind?
“Travel is a great passion of mine, which is why I feel privileged to have the opportunity to travel all over the world to meet with our clients. This has enabled me to build strong and trustworthy business relationships. I also enjoy watching football which with being English can sometimes be more frustrating work than enjoyment!”
Tony’s technical background spans over 30 years and includes working in a number of different cities across the world including London, Zurich and Munich.
Tony and his wife now live in a small village in Yorkshire.
