Finance Manager

I joined Artorius as a Finance Manager in August 2021. The main focus of my role is on data quality improvements, delivering new reporting systems and providing management information.

Prior to joining Artorius, I developed my finance and commercial skills within the technology, retail and banking industries. After graduating from university with a first class honours degree in accounting and finance, I gained my first hands-on accounting experience at Intel Corporation, where I was an entity accountant for the Nordic division as well as managed M&A projects in an effort to simplify the legal structure of the organisation. Afterwards, I worked on strategic investments at The Co-op, where I developed financial models for capital investment opportunities, which led to launching numerous of new stores across the nation and significantly improving hundreds of existing stores. Prior to joining Artorius, I worked at BNY Mellon as a lead fund accountant for BlackRock and Invesco client accounts, ensuring the accuracy and integrity of statutory reports.

Outside work, you will often find me hiking in the countryside, bouldering at Depot Climbing Centre, travelling and spending time with my family and friends.
