The Team

Tim Stone BA(Hons)Econ, ACA

Having graduated from Nottingham University in 1978 Tim qualified as a chartered accountant with Mellors, Basden and Adamson in 1982.

After gaining experience with smaller commercial businesses he joined the Dalgety Group in 1991. The petfood business in which he worked was acquired from Dalgety by Nestlé in 1998 and Tim continued to progress his career in a rapidly evolving business. He assumed the role of financial controller in a business which had a turnover of approximately £380m, and was part of a management team that was a responsible for the implementation of the SAP management information system and also the acquisition and integration of the Purina petfood business.

Upon the creation of the European petfood share services centre Tim was appointed Regional Controller for the UK and Nordic markets. As the responsibilities of the shared services centre developed he also assumed responsibility for other markets including Germany and Italy.

In 2007 Nestlé embarked on a global project of outsourcing transactional activities to a third part provider operating in Poland and India. Tim was appointed a member of the team responsible for overseeing the migration of these activities for all European petfood markets and left the business after 16 years upon the successful completion of this project in January 2008.

From January 2008 Tim has provided financial consultancy services including the management of the day to day financial processes for a wide range of clients, the provision of accurate accounting information, the preparation of statuory accounts and the management of other ad hoc projects and assignments as required.
