Financial Controller | Project Manager

Country or State



I am a senior finance professional, chartered accountant, with more than 30 years’ experience of strategic leadership as a CFO and across Audit, Financial Control and FP&A for complex global corporates. I possess a comprehensive knowledge across all core technical aspects of accounting and a strong track record of delivering transformational change, strengthening internal controls and facilitating global revenue growth, particularly in the FMCG and manufacturing sectors. At Amway, I led a number of key initiatives, including the establishment of shared service centre operations in Poland, the implementation of Oracle ERP across 30 European markets, restructured the Board Packs and sponsored the introduction of a new data warehouse application. Taken in isolation, each of these projects were significant, but together they were transformative. Earlier in my career, I worked for United Biscuits, which was private equity-owned, and where I was heavily involved in corporate financing activities and M&A transactions that added substantially to sales, cash-flow generation, EBITDA growth and, ultimately, to value creation for shareholders. This has given my knowledge base an extra dimension and helped me to see the bigger strategic and commercial picture as a CFO. Throughout my career, I have always recognised the importance of teamwork and how everything I have achieved has been underpinned by hiring and mentoring the right people. I am a passionate believer in Diversity & Inclusion and, speaking four languages, I have a great deal of cross-cultural sensitivity, which, I believe, is increasingly important in the modern workplace. Furthermore, I am proud that I have contributed to the development of many outstanding professionals and teams during my career to date. I am currently seeking a new challenge and am always open to discussing opportunities or engaging with fellow professionals with similar interests. Please feel free to message me via LinkedIn.
