Unlocking value : Driving growth
Finance Director
Matthew Halstead
I'm an entrepreneurial, energetic and pragmatic Finance Director with 13 years' experience supporting founders, CEOs and Boards of startups and SMEs to achieve profitable growth.

I love a challenge and enjoy working with ambitious organisations that offer novel technologies and tech-enabled propositions to disrupt B2B and B2C markets. I've worked across sectors including automotive, real estate, international & national charities, and mental health, and 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!
