  • Clear vision of where and how finance adds value to a business, and an intuitive sense for good commercial decisions
  • Seen equally as a business person and a finance professional
  • An enquiring mind to fully get under the skin of the numbers and question why the numbers look as they do, to fully understand what is driving performance
  • Strong analytical skills that enable you to present back in a cogent manner what is driving performance
  • Credibility and gravitas to gain the respect and trust of stakeholders
  • An open and collaborative style with the ability to translate complex subject matter expertise to key stakeholders with clarity
