Finance & Leadership
As businesses develop and grow, the complexity of financial challenge grows in parallel, often triggering the need for new and more senior leadership in the Finance function.
A strong financial leader will encourage you forward when you need to seize the opportunity and put the brakes on when required. They will recognise the needs of the business, the operation, the marketing teams as well as counting the pennies and managing cost. They will keep you focused even when the future is bright as they know the next bump in the road could be just around the corner and the organisation needs to be prepared.
We can offer the benefits of strong financial leadership without the traditional costs and risks. You can get the benefit of knowledge and experience from our experienced group instead of a single hire. We realise that it’s not always the best idea to have permanent staff due to the cost and obligations that come with such hires, a viable solution is to engage the services of an professional with the expertise you require for the length of time you require it. Pinnaklo provides such expertise tailored to suit your requirements.

We engaged Noella’s services to help us strengthen commercially. Over the last 14 months Noella has become an integral part of the team, helping us identify risk and opportunity in the business, redesigning our processes so we can see revenue growth opportunities more clearly whilst increasing profitability. In March 2020, we as many other Irish indigenous companies were impacted by Covid-19, through Noella’s leadership, calm and organised approach in building a trusting relationship with the senior team and with her leadership strengths and financial aptitude enabled us to make timely and appropriate decisions to get us back on track Noella cares as much about the business success as the owners and has our best interest at heart. Our company is stronger as a result of Noella’s engagement with Ballymaloe Foods.
