I am IOD PARC’s General Manager, responsible for ensuring resources are used efficiently to underpin our business strategy. Maintaining a strategic overview, I work closely with the Managing Director and Portfolio Team leads to monitor progress and manage resources and budgets to ensure delivery of our management plans. I have provided financial and contract management support for numerous assignments including the Evaluation Quality Assurance and Learning Services (EQUALS) for DFID, the long-running Multilateral Organisation Performance Assessment Network assessments, the DFID Nepal Resilience Portfolio MEL Unit, the evaluation of the World Health Organisation’s presence in countries, the consultancy to strengthen the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program and the evaluation of the Paris Declaration Phase 2.
Working with IOD PARC’s consultants I lead project based financial management, contracting and sub-contracting and I am a key contributor in the overall management of all IOD PARC projects. I work with colleagues across the organisation including Business Development, Finance, IT, HR and Operations to provide support services and systems to our Portfolio Teams, enabling efficient delivery of our consulting services. Based on skills learnt and developed in over 30 years of financial experience, I can work effectively with a wide range of people and organisations to quickly understand the internal and external requirements for both short and long-term financial management. I joined IOD PARC in 2008 following a long career in banking and retail and am AAT qualified.
