Scott is Arbtech’s Finance Manager. He started his career training as an accountant, working in several practices (including the one across the road from us), before joining the team. Today, he reports to Julia, Chris and Rob, and is directly responsible for many of the critical finance functions in the company, including credit control, banking, payroll, and the production of reports of financial data each month.
Scott was looking to move into a role where he could grow himself professionally, outside of the narrow confines of the accountant’s domain: and here, where he interacts with marketing, sales, and business management, he has certainly found it.
Scott has been with us 3 years.
Robert Oates, director says:
The truth is, I have known Scott a long time and always thought that he’s exactly the sort of person I want in the company’s finance team. However, he worked for my accountant and good friend of some 15 years, Andrew… right across the courtyard at our offices. So, I had to wait patiently until one day I caught wind of his intention to move on, and that just so happened to coincide with the business growing to the point where I needed someone to take charge of “finance”, as I could no longer do everything I needed to, and indeed wanted to! Its great to have Scott here. Within a few months he has produced a lot of value for the management team and taken it upon himself to improve most (if not all) of our financial systems and methods. I’m looking forward to what he can do for us in the coming months, and years.
