A Bio from our new FD

29 October 2015

Hi everyone, and first of all, thank you all for the warm welcome I have received.

A little bit about me!

I spent the first 10 years of my career in public practice with Price Bailey, a local firm of Chartered Accountants. Whilst there, I completed both my AAT and ACCA studies. Since then I have spent the last 17 or so years sitting on the other side of the fence, plying my trade in industry and commerce, and have held a number of finance roles ranging from Financial Accountant to Group Finance Director.

I have held positions with both locally established family run businesses and larger corporate entities based in The City in a variety of different industry sectors (Stock photography, Telecoms, Life Sciences and a Professional body for Facilities Management). Naturally, I have always run the Finance department, but additionally, at one time or another, I have had responsibility for the majority of back office supporting functions.

I live in Bishops Stortford with my wife Emma, three children Luke, Ben and Holly and Labrador Bella. If I am fortunate enough to get any free time, I try to get out on my road bike, though these days my legs don’t go round quite as fast as they used to!

I am really excited about the challenge ahead of me as Interim FD, and I look forward to working with you all over the coming months.
