Group Financial Controller

What do you do at W.Howard?  I’m part of the finance team and senior management team overseeing the day to day finance functions of all of W.Howard’s companies. I’m also involved in many continuous projects to evolve and improve our processes and systems.

When did you join W.Howard? August 2015

What do you most enjoy about working at W.Howard?  Being a part of a great team of enthusiastic people and involved in a company that is in constant change and growth.  Each day is never the same as the company never stands still.  The change I have seen in just 7 years is impressive and a testament to all the people that work here.

What is your Favourite Product and why?  Chamfered and V grooved.  We have just completed an extension and refurb of our house and it has added that modern sleek finishing touch to each room.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?  My grandad always told me to “Try your best”.  Basically if you’ve given 100% each time in your sport, work and life and don’t come out on top then you can still be proud knowing you’ve given it your all.  Re-evaluate, retrain and go again.

What most recently made you smile?  My daughter passing trials to play for Manchester United Girls and my son winning his swimming competition.

Favourite Quote:  If its worth doing its worth doing properly, (otherwise don’t waste your time, its too precious).

Favourite Book:  Most autobiographies, Roy Keane, Duncan Bannatyne Sir Alex Ferguson to name a few.

What was your first job?  Working in a shed factory felting roofs and creosoting panels.
