My quote: "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way’

My role at London Residential: My job involves spreadsheets, numbers and a lot of problem solving! I’ve always enjoyed puzzles and love discovering new Excel features, which only serves to remind me how little I really know about its full capabilities. What I like best about my job is interacting with employees on all different levels of the organization and across all functional areas. I love that I get to learn new things about the company/business/market every day, and they are only occasionally are finance/accounting-specific. This is by far the most rewarding role I have had in my career.

Background: Where relevant I have studied ACCA. I have worked in the industry since 2005 within accounting firms with different clients, including the luxury perfumer Miller Harris. By joining London Residential, I fulfilled my ambition to take the leap from accounts into finance.

These are a few of my favourite things:

Morning starts with cappuccino, test drive different cars whenever & where ever I can, spending time with my kids.
