Áine joined the firm in 1989 and quickly moved upwards to Financial Controller in 1992 and then onto her current role as Finance Director. Áine takes the lead in overseeing the firm's finances - a position that plays to her strengths in data-interpretation, skillful resource-planning and an unparalleled knowledge of the firm's systems and operations.
This knowledge is brought to bear in her work with the management team, where she's involved in business development, setting and measuring KPIs, and ensuring that remedial action is taken if required. It all adds up; with Áine in charge of the firm's financial reporting, the books will always be balanced.

Áine IRL (In Real Life)
If Áine’s not with family and friends, you’ll find her in relaxed mode with the phone on silent (she’ll get back to you), the hubby safely on the golf-course, her latest Karin Slaughter in hand and some Ella playing in the background!
