“Oliver is one of the best finance and accounting executives that I have worked with. He has the unique ability of being able to identify and understand trends in any set of financial accounts and then formulate and implement highly effective strategic and tactical responses if required. On top of this, his enthusiasm, commitment and work ethic is second to none.”
“Having worked with Oliver in several capacities over the past few years, I have been impressed with his dedication, leadership and insight. I have witnessed Oliver successfully lead the restructure of an under-utilized, transaction focused finance team into a high performing, strategic focused finance team that is better placed to support the board and executives with making critical business decisions. I would highly recommend Oliver to any enterprise who is seeking a hard-working, results driven finance executive who exhibits high integrity and great communication skills that foster strong professional relationships.”
“As an audit manager, I worked closely with Oliver in his capacity as the CFO of our client.
After being appointed to that role, Oliver quickly identified a number of operational & strategic issues facing the business, as well as numerous control weaknesses which required significant attention. Oliver implemented clear strategies and processes to address these issues, and was able to surround himself with the appropriate resources and technical expertise to ensure these changes were dealt with efficiently and are sustainable in the long-term. Oliver’s personality and ability to relate to both board level and operational staff within the organization meant that he was very quickly able to form relationships and gain an understanding of the challenges facing the business. These skills also enabled Oliver to tailor management reporting and analytical modelling to support the board’s strategic agenda, and to really focus on implementing appropriate changes to the control environment to suit the company and the industry in which it operated. “
