“I am really excited to be part of EFM’s growing team of part-time Finance Directors and finance professionals. I have been made to feel very welcome by Gary Jesson, Malcolm Holloway and Steve Clough and I am inspired by their vision of being one of the leading providers of outsourced financial management and strategic financial advice to SMEs in the UK. The training & induction programme has been excellent and the support offered by the Head Office team in Luton was second to none. I am very much looking forward to talking to new SME clients and showing them how EFM can help them achieve their goals.”
