Angela Mortimer Plc (2008 - 2012)

Angela Mortimer is a privately ownd recruitment consultancy based in Golden Square London and with offices in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Paris and Brussels. Turnover £40m and 200 staff worldwide.

I served as CFO from July 2008 to April 2012 managing a team of six. This period encompassed the banking crisis, triggered by the collapse of Lehmans in late 2008. As a result the first task was to make substantial cost reductions primarily in the back office including outsourcing the entire HR function.

Finance for growth was provided by the introduction of an invoice discounting facility.
