Jen Gerrard

Managing Director

Jen is a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA) and is the name behind the firm, heading up our training and consultancy divisions. With a wealth of trustee experience at both a local and national level, Jen is a regular speaker on charity finance and governance matters. A member of ICAEW’s charity & voluntary sector group, Jen regularly contributes to Sector publications and has her own column for Accounting Web.

Jen has been described as a “bit of a strange creature”, a self-confessed “tech geek” and is equally as comfortable in front of spreadsheets as she is lecturing or cooking up random creations in the kitchen for her family.
