Background and industry experience

Helen is responsible for the financial accounting team, ensuring that the firm’s financial transactions are correctly processed and that we don’t fall foul of any compliance, tax or banking requirements. Helen is a Chartered Accountant and has spent over twenty years working as a financial controller and reporting manager in the financial services sector. She has worked for companies such as Capital One Bank and Britannia Building Society alongside a spell in manufacturing working for Prince Minerals Ltd.

Helen lives on a farm outside Ashbourne in Derbyshire alongside her husband, a herd of Hereford beef cattle, a small number of Belted Galloways, her three horses and four dogs. The small amount of free time left over once the animals have been looked after is spent working in the gorgeous Derbyshire countryside or volunteering at her local Riding for the Disabled centre.
