My career has had its roots firmly set in finance where I found my initial vocation as a Chartered Accountant (ACA). More recently expanding it by becoming a Business Finance Professional (BFP) with the ICAEW.
I moved in-house to lead the Financial Planning function of a rapidly growing pay-tech business before its acquisition by a US-listed payments Company.
In 2014, I founded RJSG, a partner led boutique advisory and accountancy firm focussing on rapidly growing SMEs with a particular focus on professional service and consultancy businesses. My experience in providing, not only traditional accounting services, but operational and strategic advisory, fractional CFO, COO, Chief of Staff and Non-Executive advisory services stood RJSG in good stead for its move to New York in 2017.
In New York my focus shifted to assisting UK businesses moving into the USA and helping them navigate through the complexities of running and growing Trans-Atlantic businesses. Here, I started working with Tempting Ventures in early 2020 and the opportunity arose for me to join them as their Group CFO in February 2022 located in their New York office. My role helps Tempting Ventures spearhead growth in the USA whilst providing continued support to growing its UK and European operations.
