Rachel is a qualified chartered accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. She has spent over 15 years working in strategic and commercial finance positions across a wide range of small and large businesses such as Arthur Andersen, Deloitte, Music Choice, Warner Bros, Turner Broadcasting and most recently as Group Finance Director at Tigerspike.
Rachel was recently named in the Power Part Time Top 50, a prestigious list of the top 50 senior part-time workers in the UK, published in the Financial Times in November 2012.
Rachel believes in working in partnership with the senior management team of the companies she advises. She becomes part of the team, understanding the day to day running of the business, inside out. Problem solving, trouble-shooting and putting the right plans, systems and people in place to help businesses leap ahead and lead.
The Tech Start Up
“Under Rachel’s tutelage, we now have a sophisticated model that adheres to standard modelling principles and as a result, we finally have clear sight in terms of predicting cashflow. Rachel provided long-term introductory accounting training for our junior finance associate and invaluable outside counsel as we negotiated with our accounting firm. From an operations perspective, Rachel has assisted us with a number of sensitive HR matters that we had not previously encountered. Further, Rachel freely makes introductions to service providers in her own network, which has helped us enormously.”
The Media Company
“We contacted The Growth Lab when we needed to pull together a business plan to help raise investment for our film. In addition to that, Rachel was also able to reach out to her network of potential investors, as well as letting us know about tax breaks available to us.”
The Multinational Digital Developer
“Tigerspike had a real need to bring on someone in a senior strategic finance role to help grow the company and raise investment. Since coming on board, Rachel has been instrumental in a number of transformational projects such as overseeing our first round of investment, rolling out an accounting/CRM system for businesses across the world to follow, approving business cases for investment spend, opening up new offices and rolling out a clear forecasting and management reporting process.”
The Beauty Business
“Rachel’s guidance was crucial in the early stages of setting up my business. Not only did Rachel create a strong business plan to help me raise a bank loan, she also devised a clear and comprehensible cost/benefit analysis, which enabled me to decide whether to purchase or hire the vital equipment I needed.”
