New board members at Purple Frog
Purple Frog is very pleased to appoint two new members to the board; Chantal Matthews as Finance Director and Andy Parkes as Business Development Director.
Chantal has worked alongside us for many years through her Accountancy firm. She recently sold her accountancy business to concentrate on her consultancy work and is delighted to join the board to oversee Finance.
Andy Parkes has also worked with Purple Frog over the past few years on an ad-hoc consultancy basis. When our new product Power BI Sentinel was launched, we knew that we would need a Business Development specialist to oversee it and Andy is excited to take on this role.
After a 30 year career in the UK Police Service and retiring with a wealth of experience in Leadership, Management and Command Andy began a second career supporting existing businesses and start-ups where he was able to assist younger people to obtain support, finance and mentoring. In parallel with this he held a Non-Executive Director role with a large Housing association.
He comes with the life experience and qualifications to take the company to the next level and complements the ethics and values already in the team.
Chantal's experience is wide and varied but bean counting is definitely in her blood. She is a 4th generation accountant with 14 years’ experience in automotive, 6 years in the jewellery industry and most recently starting, growing and selling her own accounting practice.
She now works closely with a few handpicked clients supporting them and their finance teams, while following her passion in property and wealth creation.
We look forward to working with Chantal and Andy.
