Interim Financial Controller qualifications and Experience

I graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 1989 with an Honours Business Studies Degree and am a fully qualified Chartered Accountant.

I qualified with Arthur Andersen in London and have 20 years' experience in Finance. Previously I held full time CFO roles in Navan Resources PLC (a diversified mining group with production activities in Bulgaria, Spain and Hungary) and MV Technology (Manufacturer and developer of intelligent inspection and measurement systems for SMT manufacturing processes)
before founding VFS in 2002.

In MVT I helped grow the company from a small Trinity college campus company ($0.5m revenue & 7 employees) in 1996 to a viable commercial position (turnover of $28m and with 140 employees worldwide) in 2000. In 2001 MVT was successfully sold for €100m to Agilent Technologies (formerly part of Hewlett Packard) for a substantial financial gain to the MVT shareholders. In Navan Resources I was CFO for the Irish parent company from 1993 to 1995. Navan was quoted on the Irish Stock Exchange and I developed the Finance Function and the financial reporting of the company’s acquisitions & 15 subsidiaries in Bulgaria, Hungary, Spain, the Netherlands and Scotland.

In January 2002 I established my own Interim Financial Control and General Financial Consultancy business and have used my in depth business knowledge to assist a number of SME companies to successfully grow and achieve their financial goals. I have also used my MVT experience to guide start up and young companies through the financial pitfalls of their early years. In this role I work closely with owner managers & senior management in a number of industries that includes software and gaming technology, mining, pharmaceutical, construction, food, children’s retail and engineering.
