Bio

 

 

 

I began my career with PwC and gained a huge amount of experience in the 13 years I spent with the organisation, both in the UK and internationally. 

I have since worked in various companies as a Finance Director/CFO. Since leaving my last full time role, I have gained some fantastic experience as a portfolio FD.

 

I really enjoy working with the FD Consultant as I love collaborating with different organisations and the variety of work that I get involved in.

Bio

After training with PwC, I joined FTSE100 group Tate & Lyle plc, where I held various roles, including Finance Director of a group subsidiary where I led strategic planning and an end to end systems replacement.  Working with the Managing Director, we acquired a number of businesses and delivered a 400% EBITDA increase.

 

More recently I have worked in the business services and travel sectors for more than 20 years with a twin focus as Finance Director and leader of all aspects of business change. I have twice worked with owner led businesses to successful sales into PE ownership with both preparation for sale and through discussion with Private Equity investors.

I trained and qualified as an accountant 20 years ago with Ernst & Young and then moved on to join Bunzl plc, a FTSE 100 organisation where I worked in various senior finance roles for 6 years.  

My last two full time CFO roles involved being a key member of successful management teams growing start ups from no more than a few employees.

 

One business, a pioneering eco friendly consumables supplier, increased its revenues by 9 times during my time there. A true highlight was winning a tender for the 2012 London Olympics with this enterprise.
