Jerome is a Chartered Accountant who spent twenty-five years in commercial financial leadership roles with blue chip companies including KPMG, Fisons plc and ICL-Fujitsu Services and was fortunate to have lived and worked in Canada, Sweden, France and Holland as well as the UK.

Jerome entered the third sector in 2008 and worked for five years with the largest DWP third sector provider, Shaw Trust, and as CFO was part of the team that secured a large percentage of the Work Choice prime contracts assisting disabled and disadvantaged clients into the workplace and helped steer the organisation through a large merger in 2012.

Prior to joining United Response, Jerome worked as an interim Finance Director in the third sector including periods with the well-known charities Barnardo’s and Anthony Nolan. Jerome lives in rural Suffolk and when not working or commuting is normally found out on a bike desperately trying to shed a few grammes before the next sportive arrives!
