Non Executive Director


This is a vital and skilled resource for any company (whether public or private) and success in this role means combining experience, judgement, advice, support - and censure when necessary - to all stakeholders in the business.

The experience of Building Value founder Tony Williams is tailor-made for helping corporates grow and develop –and to deal with issues when they arise (as they always do).

For many years, Tony was an investment analyst specialising in the building materials, real estate, construction and support services sectors with UBS (aka Phillips & Drew), Morgan Stanley and ABN AMRO. During this time he was highly ranked in both the UK and US –and wrote research on a range of international companies. Flotations, mergers and acquisitions plus treasury and share related issues were also a large part of his work and details are listed elsewhere in this website (see Corporate Finance plus Mergers & Acquisitions).

In 1992-96, Tony was Director of Corporate Planning with Tarmac plc which, in the 1980s, was the UK’s number one in quarry products, construction and housebuilding plus it owned a substantial business in the US. However, the Group was impacted severely by the recession which dominated the industry in the first half of the 1990s and, to ensure its survival, Tarmac underwent extensive rationalisation and financial reconstruction. The process culminated in the £300 million asset swap (housing for aggregates-construction-and-cash) with George Wimpey (which later merged with Taylor Woodrow). Not surprisingly, Tony says that he learned more in this four year stint than at any other time in his career.

In the late 1990s, Tony was a Director of ING Barings in Global Corporate Finance. Once again, he specialised in building materials, construction and support services (full details are shown in Mergers & Acquisitions).
