Louisa McCann

Finance Director and Company Secretary

Tell us a bit about your background

I started my finance career in private practice and moved into industry with The Yardley Lentheric Group Plc as an International Analyst, followed by commercial roles with Alpha Airports Group Plc. During my 13 years as Finance Director (EMEA) with The Body Shop Plc (L’Oreal), I relocated the regional office to Paris, contributed to brand openings in over 20 new markets, and undertook 11 significant acquisitions. I’ve also driven large scale transformation projects in each of these organisations.  And in October 2016, I joined Hft.

“Our challenge, is to create a service model which is sustainable in the long term whilst reacting to the short term funding crisis now – but with the sole aim of providing the best outcomes for the people we support.”
