We are pleased to have appointed Catherine Wilson as our first Finance Director. Catherine will draw upon over 30 years’ experience to strategically manage and advise on all finance related matters and to support the firm with its ambitions growth plans. Part of her role will involve assessing the firm’s financial processes so they operate to maximum efficiency and profitability including ensuring that partners have the latest figures at their fingertips so faster decisions can be made.
For a number of years Catherine has specialised in helping dynamic, ambitious businesses to grow. Prior to joining the firm, Catherine was finance director of Microsulis Medical Limited in Portsmouth and was the UK interim finance director of AngioDynamics.
Catherine said: “I will be constantly challenging and assessing procedures to ensure that financial processes are much easier for everyone in Gardner Leader so they can devote more of their time to clients and the future growth of the business rather than spending it on internal matters. It’s a very exciting time to be joining and I look forward to supporting the firm in taking it to another level of growth.”
Derek Rodger, managing partner, said, “We are delighted that Catherine could join the team. We can benefit from her years of experience in seeing how finance operations work across other industries and businesses, both large and small, and apply some of these lessons to tighten and strengthen our own procedures.”
