I am the Sales Finance Manager for the Masonry and Insulation(M&I) business unit in CSR. The M&I brands include Bradford Insulation, PGH Bricks and Pavers and Monier Roofing amongst others.
My prior work experiences over the past 17 years includes holding finance roles in steel and bricks manufacturing as well as a purely operational role for a few years at a manufacturing plant, to understand operations in a hands-on fashion.
It is essential that the connection between the processes and more importantly people are well understood in relation to numbers. This allows incredible value to be added to the decision-making process.
I have been with the Staff association for the last 3 years. I was motivated to join the association when I saw the dedication and support provided by the committee to their members.
Together with the committee, this has given me the opportunity to contribute to the helping of our members across various concerns and with the management of the financial aspects of the organisation.
I would encourage any prospective member to join the association with the knowledge that they will have a dedicated point of HR/IR advice should a need arise. Giving you the peace of mind and clarity when needed.
