The Finance Director for a successful marketing consultancy in Hampshire servicing small and medium businesses with design, print, marketing and consultancy. I have in excess of 30 years accounting experience in varied roles across a variety of industries and sectors including financial services, manufacturing and retail. A diverse range of positions has been critical, resulting in outstanding accounting skills and specialist knowledge of procedures and reporting.

Previous to having a break to raise a family I was the Dealership Accountant for a multi franchise motor dealer in Buckinghamshire responsible for three dealerships. Working in conjunction with the General Managers I was responsible to the Divisional Financial Controller and responsible for detailed monthly management accounts including cash flows and comparisons with budget variances, the control of clerical reporting procedures, budgets and forecasts and keeping accurate records and reconciled accounts designed to show the current position of the company.

In the summer of 2014 I was involved in the initial Succeedin team and have continued to be active in its growth and expansion. I am currently responsible for all aspects of the accounting procedures and administration, delivering detailed and accurate accounts, reports and analyses as well as a day to day operational role.

A year ago I left Buckinghamshire to be by the sea and have discovered I love living here although some days the wind coming across the Solent can be a little severe!
