Previous to this, she spent 10 years of her career working in the retail industry as Group Financial Director for Lush Ltd.

Her past experience, as Head of IP for Mazars nationally, has led Heather to have a particular specialism within the world of R&D and with innovative businesses.

Not only this, she is also experienced in working with Owner Managed Businesses and their Share Schemes, and remuneration planning.
