Jack was interested in numbers from an early age. After completing a degree in finance in University in Maynooth, Jack trained as a chartered accountant. He began his career working in an established financial services company, where he formed a core knowledge base for structured finance products. From here, he established himself in a well-known private equity firm to work in areas including treasury, accounting, debt servicing, lending and loan asset management. Having held numerous positions working with distressed debt situations, he’s now delighted to be part of a vibrant organisation which is on the other side of the table, supporting SME companies recover and begin their own growth story.
“The business is constantly evolving so the best part of the role for me, is watching the senior team continually looking at different scenarios to grow the business in order to help serve the market with the best products and flexibility. It’s great to be a part of something so dynamic. I think it’s held onto a great start up mentality whereby we are all involved in the decisions. Issues are put out on the table and thrashed out, with quick decision making a must.
Jack believes “the devil is in the detail” and enjoys working as part of the growing finance function in Capitaflow. With the business growing at such a fast pace, the finance function is under increased pressure to ensure Capitalflow is funded to meet their client’s needs. Jack’s role involves the analysis of potential debt and equity funding options, financial planning and budgeting, and the arranging of funding avenues for projected future growth.
