I joined Sionic in July 2017 as the financial controller. Prior to that I trained as a statutory accountant/auditor while studying for the ACA qualification, and thereafter gained some experience in the Financial Planning and Analysis team of another private-equity-backed firm. During my time at Sionic I have learnt a lot about implementing financial controls across a high-growth global firm, management information reporting in a professional services firm and financial statutory compliance. I assisted with the due diligence work or our 2019 merger with Catalyst, and have been involved in the integration post-merger. I also enjoy working closely alongside Richard Cowen, our Chief Financial Officer.
