We moved into our current Maidenhead home in March 2016. We have a lot more space, light and the right environment to work effectively and efficiently, which is pretty important when you work in finance! Part of the EMEA finance team are based in Maidenhead so it gives us the opportunity to work closer with other support functions like Operations, Procurement, and Customer Services. We have the right teams and the right people in place to support our continued growth across EMEA.
I have always been involved in Logistics and Supply Chain so I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to lead Inventory Operations at McGraw-Hill Education. Having the chance to influence the supply chain for our EMEA operation means I can help to get our learning resources and materials out to students and educators as quickly as possible. The Maidenhead office has some great space for meetings, collaborative working and, a nice wide break area where you can get a coffee or tea.
I have been part of the McGraw-Hill Education family since 2005 and have seen quite a lot of changes during my time. The most significant was becoming a private equity organisation. This resulted in a tight focus on delivering student-led products and resources.
I am very lucky to work as part of a senior, global IT team that is based in Maidenhead. We have the right people, the right technology and the right environment to provide the IT resources needed for all of our global employees.
