As the Finance Manager in Alternatives I am responsible for all our commercial matters. I ensure that all of our interim managers are paid on time, that our clients pay us on time and manage the all-important cash-flow of the company. I started my career with a graduateship from the marketing Institute of Ireland in 1994. I then worked for 8 years in Ireland and the UK as an account manager in a variety of agencies.
I joined Alternatives in 2001 and slowly my role changed into a predominantly operations and financial one. I qualified as a CIMA Accountant in September 2010. The best thing about Alternatives for me is seeing how the company has grown and changed from the early days. It has been a fascinating (and educational) experience to watch all of this activity from inside a busy Irish-owned enterprise.
