I had the pleasure of working with Pauline at Promethean for 8 years. Pauline is one of the few talented individuals who can straddle both a finance and operations role. She took the time to build relationships and understand the function to facilitate provision of relevant management accounts, KPI’s and financial support to deliver initiatives for HR that had a wider crucial impact on the business. Pauline is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and due to her warm personality, I looked forward to my finance meetings with her. She would be an asset to any organisation.
Pauline is a commercially astute professional who has the ability to provide practical leadership across all functions to return cost and process efficiencies. Her attention to detail ,cash and budget forecasting , and accurate business planning , allow businesses strategy alignment. She is thoroughly professional, honest and well respected within her teams for her integrity and ability to complete complex tasks. She has also a great sense of humour. I particularly respect her robust business ethics and steadfastness, in the face of pressure from above her.
Pauline has developed our first set of accounts for our not for profit. Her expertise and support has been invaluable to us helping us to develop a set of management accounts that are easy to navigate and update as well as supporting our annual return and keeping our board completely up to date with the financial health of the organisation. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with and we couldn’t have managed it with out her support.
The latest news, articles and happenings from Chris and Pauline are here or can be read in full on our blog page. We update our website regularly therefore we recommend frequently returning to get the latest information to help your business thrive.

Whilst CFOs and accountants may overlap in some of their skills, especially in smaller businesses, they generally spend their time on different tasks. Both roles are essential to a company’s success, complimenting each other with expert eyes on both the past and the future. An […]
