Finance Director
Matthew Halstead
I'm an entrepreneurial, energetic and pragmatic Finance Director with 15 years' experience supporting founders, CEOs and Boards of startups and SMEs to achieve profitable growth.

I love a challenge, working across sectors with ambitious organisations that offer novel technologies and tech-enabled propositions to disrupt B2B and B2C markets. I have a broad range of leadership, professional and technical skills that I apply at Executive and Board levels.

In addition, I'm a self-funded PhD Candidate in Quantum Chemistry, and a Trustee / Board Director of Catch22, a social business that designs and delivers public services that build resilience and aspiration in people and communities. I previously worked in the nonprofit sector focussing on the issue of oil extraction in the Niger Delta - my research work is included here for reference!
I am proud to work with my clients...
...and greatly appreciate their feedback
