Nice to meet you, my name’s Jon and I’m Signify’s Finance Director. I’m a qualified accountant and have worked in corporate finance for over twelve years, predominantly in the recruitment industry. Over this period, I’ve grown and developed as a finance professional and spent many years as part of a leadership team driving the business forward with financial support. I’ve managed teams and loved developing and nurturing talent and watching people thrive.
As you’d expect I’m a dab hand on a spreadsheet but also love the modern side of accounting and working with new technological tools that can help provide fast and reliable information into the hands of those who need it. I’ve worked in the recruitment industry for a while because I’ve really enjoyed the fast paced, energetic and fun working environment it offers. I’m passionate about the important role finance plays in shaping and growing the business and feel strongly that financial data and insight should work in harmony with sales teams to drive performance.
In my personal life, I’m a family man from Essex who loves spending time with my wife and young son. I’m always looking for new places to visit at home or abroad or places to go to meet up with friends. I’m a keen gardener and keep backyard chickens and I also like to cook at the weekends. I love all sports and like to ruin a good walk playing golf whenever I get the chance.
If you fancy a chat about anything Finance then let me know as I’m always happy to help!
