Length of experience: (Too long!) 34 years

Positions held Last 3 posts: Finance and Core Operations Director (Market Research Company), Business Manager (Independent School), Head of Finance and Corporate Services (Cosgrove)

Professional / special interests: Most of my spare time is spent on my Church and chauffeuring my youngest daughter. I am Treasurer and head up the finance committee of my Church. Attend a weekly boxercise class and hopefully will try and keep the running going.

Specific area of focus/interest within Cosgrove: Obviously finance ensuring that we operate efficiently and effectively and also assisting with the need to diversify our income stream.

One fun fact: this was difficult (as I am obviously a boring accountant!) but needs to be ‘Kissing Donny Osmond’ my pop idol when I was young.
