Oremus UK
Categories: The Top Management

Lisa has worked within the accounting sector for over thirty years, employed for seventeen years, in private practice, as a Senior Accountant for a Chartered Accountancy firm with her own portfolio of clients. She was then appointed as a Financial Controller for a large industrial manufacturing company based in the North West, reporting directly to Board level.

Her insights into the licensed sector, coupled with her expertise in all facets of financial and taxation requirements for small and medium sized enterprises led to her appointment as Chief Business Officer for the Oremus group of companies in 2020. Lisa lives on the Wirral peninsula with her husband and two sons. One of four sisters, much of her leisure time is spent enjoying moments with her family. She is a seasoned traveller with a particular fondness for Rome. Her other love is for music, particularly music festivals, and she is a veteran of at least six Glastonburys!
