I run the finance team at Woven, which includes collecting cash from all our customers, making sure staff and suppliers get paid on time, and preparing monthly and annual accounts. I also manage the mergers and acquisition process as we continue to expand the business.
I joined Woven in August 2019 and prior to that I was Finance Director at FirstPort a private equity owned property management company, I have experience as a Finance Director in both FTSE 100 and start-up businesses. I spent 6 years as a Finance Director in Openreach working closely with the executive team to deliver the UK’s hi-tech fibreoptic broadband network, including the rural Broadband UK programme. Prior to that, I spent 3 years as Finance Director in a start-up healthcare operation, Circle Health which I helped float on AIM.
I have previously held senior finance positions in BT Retail, Centrica and British Airways, where I led large finance teams, improving performance and controls through technology and process improvement. I completed an MBA at London Business School, am ACMA qualified and a member of the IoD.
Woven is a fantastic opportunity to do something different for customers and staff, using technology to provide a greater experience for our client’s customers than our clients can fulfil themselves, which in turn will delight their customers. This makes our staff’s job much more interesting and worthwhile, as the desktop technology they use helps them become more engaged, better able to support the customer’s requirements and to spend more time talking to satisfied customers.
