Responsible for the core finance function of the company and working with the leadership team to drive the strategic plan for the business, whilst meeting all statutory requirements.
I qualified as a certified accountant in industry and have worked as a Finance Director for 10 years now, mostly in multi-site businesses, most significantly as Finance Director (Europe) for an Aviation Company, spending time growing the business into Scandinavia, and then within a large chain of health clubs. My main interest has been in commercial finance focusing on strategy, growing businesses organically and through acquisitions. I pride myself on being a good communicator and building great relationships across the business!
Most of my time these days is spent enjoying family time with my husband and our two lovely and very lively children, Maisy and Josh! I love to exercise, enjoying running in particular – I find it a great way to clear the mind and re-energise! It also allows me to indulge in my other love…food!! When I first met my husband’s parents, we discovered that we had actually both attended the same infant school 34 years ago and subsequently found a class photo with us both sat in the front row!
The Stopgap team have made me feel hugely welcome - it is a very special, passionate and caring environment to work in and I look forward to continuing all the great work!
