Alister Clark launched Tillycroy Support Services in July 2012. Prior to this Alister had worked for a number of years within the transport industry before joining a multinational soft drinks company where part of his remit was to deliver training. Then due to a change in circumstances Alister was led to reassess his career and he made the decision to follow a long-held desire to start up in business.
It was the desire to succeed combined with determination, hard work and lots of personal sacrifices that has led Alister to build up the business that Tillycroy Support Services are today. The business prides itself on the quality of training, leading us to secure and maintain a portfolio of regular clients. The company has been recognised for success, when in 2017 it was chosen to be one of the top 100 small businesses in the UK as part of the Small Business 100. This is a nation-wide campaign to support, inspire and promote the UK’s 5-7 million small businesses. As a result of this Alister travelled to London to attend a reception at 10 Downing Street. Additional recognition for the company’s success came when it received a major boost from the self-made millionaire, Theo Paphitis of “Dragons Den” fame. Theo officially endorsed Tillycroy Support Services by naming Tillycroy as a winner of his Small Business Sunday competition in November 2017. As part of this, Alister met with him in February 2018 and has continued to be supported by the SBS network.
