Mark Dale

Mark joined us as our Finance Director in January 2020 and says that no two days are the same; "Alongside the oversight of all the usual finance activities such as payroll, cash management and paying suppliers etc. I also manage the UK insurance requirements, banking relationships and external advisors such as tax, pensions and audit."

"I have also led the transformation of the finance function through introducing Microsoft Dynamics and updating our processes, policies and controls. I also have accountability for our IT services working closely with our external partner, Zen." 

Mark says he enjoys the opportunity to make a positive difference in the team and the business through his role, and says his most memorable moment has been working on the acquisition and integration of Yorkshire Tiger (now rebranded to Team Pennine). "It's been great to be able to grow the business and also make a real difference to colleagues and customers with investment in facilities and vehicles. 

Mark's colleagues describe him as down to earth, friendly and approachable; and that he is calm under pressure. In his spare time, he loves to take walks with his Jack Russell Terrier Billy, travelling when he is able to and football, supporting Sunderland which he says makes him a glutton for punishment!
