Chris White Consultant

Growth advisory services and business planning for start-ups, established businesses and everything in between.

888x (pronounced ‘Triple 8’) is the culmination of my 30+ years of experience as a business owner and chartered accountant. I specialise in providing financial and corporate advice to Australian businesses of all shapes and sizes, with a particular focus on those operating in the recruitment, staffing and labour hire industries.

Throughout my career, I have gained the skills, knowledge and experience required to aid businesses in a range of areas including start-up advice, growth advisory, mergers & acquisitions, corporate restructuring and more. With several successful businesses of my own, 888X is my platform to share what I have learned by providing business consulting and advisory services.

What They’re Saying

888X worked closely with me to develop our strategy and to set up a framework to measure performance. Their industry knowledge and expertise is evident in the way they deliver their advice. Their expertise enabled the implementation of a strategy and robust plan that I was comfortable with. Once the plan was agreed, 888X acted as Executive advisors supporting me where I needed the counsel and creating a framework of accountability that supported the growth of the business. I would have no hesitation in recommending 888X.

Having worked with 888X at a previous employer, I had personally witnessed their ability to deliver transformational growth strategies for an underperforming business with significant cultural challenges.
Following my recent appointment as Managing Director at JobWire IBS, I have found myself working with 888X again – this time to assist the executive to build on the company’s already successful base and reposition us for further growth and increased profitability.
The engagement has proved successful with a number of significant cost savings already made and an aggressive growth strategy developed and in the process of being rolled out. Their comprehensive knowledge of the recruitment industry and extensive experience applying good business practice in innovative ways has been invaluable throughout this process.
888X have also worked closely with us through a number of planned and successful acquisitions, assisting us with valuation, negotiation and finalisation giving the executive confidence in the strategic plan and vision for the future.
