Sam is the Founder and Managing Director of McCarthy Global Consulting. A self-confessed perfectionist and numbers tragic, Sam’s passion is guiding entrepreneurs along the path of building sustainable, profitable businesses. With a talent for crafting innovative business strategy, a deep understanding of financial statements and a knack for analysing and explaining complex business concepts in plain English, Sam is the ideal consulting partner for SME and mid-market businesses.

Prior to founding McCarthy Global Consulting, Sam was also a co-founder of Dirigo Group, a full-service generalist advisory, finance and marketing firm. Dirigo doubled its revenues each year prior to Sam’s departure, whilst expanding into financial planning and vendor equipment finance. Sam left that business in 2016 to create MGC, a niche consultancy specifically servicing certain industries which specialist knowledge and skills are required.

Sam has also owned other successful small businesses in his own right, including a Jetts Fitness franchise.

Prior to starting his own businesses, Sam’s previous successes include helping to steer a large steel wholesaler through a devastating post-GFC industry downturn, by reducing expenditure, improving financial management and developing a more disciplined, data-driven approach to decision making. He also assisted a rapidly-growing sporting equipment wholesaler to handle its growth by implementing a comprehensive business plan and financial forecast, setting up the appropriate systems and processes and obtaining working capital finance.
