Jason is the firm’s Head of Finance. He gained his stripes working in marketing communications for global networks, SME’s and start-ups across a wide range of sectors including advertising, PR, digital, direct marketing as well as consultancy services.
With more experience than he cares to mention (25+ years), Jason has an outstanding track record of helping service based businesses grow successfully and reach their potential. Central to this has been his enthusiasm for technology and using this to help organisations become increasingly flexible, more efficient and able to make better decisions faster.
Taking the lead in managing the firm’s key financial external advisers including banks, accountants and lawyers etc., these relationships are used creatively to help the business achieve its strategy of becoming the UK’s leading workplace law firm.
Some of Jason’s recent achievements:
- Transformational change – worked with external business advisors and shareholders that defined the business strategy and delivered five years of annual double digit revenue growth.
- Operational efficiencies – implemented and managed an internal team structural change that re-focused on client delivery and resulted in a four percentage point margin improvement over the following two years.
- Business development – set up new offices in New York and Denmark that trebled geographical revenues over a two year period from start up.
Doyle Clayton represents a shift in industry for Jason, but having met the senior management team, it was an opportunity that was just too good not to miss.
Outside of work, Jason is an active volunteer helping Inspiring the Future, a website run by the charity Education and Employers, that connects primary and secondary schools and colleges with employers and individual volunteers who work together on a range of in-school activities that looks to improve the futures of young people.
