Chris Upton In 60 Seconds

FD/CFO with extensive experience in entrepreneurial styled businesses. I have been Group FD of publicly quoted companies and of privately held companies, some backed by Private Equity. I have also been a founder investor/director in a number of start-ups, so understand those particular challenges. I joined The CFO Centre in 2015 to allow me to control my work/life balance. Since then, I’ve worked with many inspiring business leaders in the South East, from Guildford to Brighton and Kingston Upon Thames.
