Alexis will be responsible for leading the separation of the accounting and finance systems from Alcumus as Santia becomes a fully standalone business. Alexis will also be responsible for HR and IT; essential to the two most important aspects of our business – people and systems.
Alexis’ experience made her the perfect choice for finance director. Alexis is an ACCA qualified accountant with over 16 years’ experience in accounting and finance. Alexis has an impressive list of achievements and accomplishments, including a 1st Class Hons BSc Applied Accounting and an MSc Accounting (Distinction) which used her expertise in systems, business integration, and strategic modelling.
Alexis started her career at Companies House, followed by several years in the private sector advising UK businesses on financial management and accounting software.
In 2010 Alexis joined Connaught Compliance as a Senior Finance Analyst, initially involved with the administration and creation of Connaught to Santia. Progressing to Head of Business Information, Alexis implemented an ERP system and reporting structure during 2011 and 2012.
In 2013 Alexis was promoted to Financial Controller and was heavily involved in the acquisition of First Order Red Ltd by Santia Asbestos Management Ltd and the subsequent sale of the Santia Group to Alcumus in 2015. Alexis has spent the last few years as the financial controller for Alcumus. Alexis’ experience made her perfect for the role in Santia Asbestos management and we are delighted to have her on board.
Craig Jones, Managing Director of Santia said “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Alexis to the team, her’ speciality in systems implementation and development will enhance our capability to deliver a class leading operating system which will be of major benefit to our staff and customers.”
Outside of work Alexis plays hockey has a passion for horse-riding and loves competing with her horse Buddy.
Over the next few months Alexis will work for Santia Asbestos Management and Alcumus until April when Alexis will then continue to work for Santia on a full-time basis.
