Jo qualified as an accountant at an earlier age than is typical due to deciding not to go to university after A Levels and going straight into industry to gain experience and study around a full time job. This method of study was repeated with the ICSA qualification and a MBA from Warwick Business School.
Jo has been involved in a variety of sectors, managing and leading finance functions, but more notably within property investment and development since 2005, ensuring as part of her finance leadership role that the operational function was aligned to the strategic goals. Within her current role she is responsible for developing the finance function to meet the strategic requirements of the company.
In her spare time Jo can be found running, swimming or undertaking random DIY tasks.
