Prior to joining Invicta Law as Financial Controller I spent a number of years as Head of Finance and Financial Controller in a range of private sector SMEs and FTSE listed businesses.
I have a background in financial planning, commercial finance, treasury management, auditing and consulting gained in the Financial Services, PFI, Retail, Manufacturing and Charity sectors.
I am a Fellow Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, qualifying in 2006.
I started my career as an auditor with Larkings Chartered Accountants. Upon qualifying I moved to the Charities Aid Foundation working in financial planning and treasury management. I worked for HCP, a PFI company as Finance Manager and then moved to Smiths Group Plc as Divisional Financial Controller.
Following a period of consultancy, during which time I worked on a range of corporate finance and change management projects, I became Head of Finance at Saga Plc heading up the group team overseeing the insurance and travel divisions.
