Chris joined the Stroke Association in September 2019 and is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the charity’s financial management and procurement. This includes financial planning and strategy, financial reporting, financial systems and financial and management accounting.

After completing a BSc in Accounting and Biotechnology at Strathclyde University, Chris spent his early career with Glasgow City Council completing his Chartered Public Finance Accountant qualification. After that Chris worked in Guyana as a VSO volunteer. This started a long career of financial management within development, humanitarian and environmental organisations across Africa and Europe.
