Always known as the kid who was “good with numbers”, Julie was brought up with strong and focus driven work ethics, surrounded by a family who always encouraged her to deliver the best of herself.
At University in Wales and for a year in Canada Julie studied International Business and Finance, knowing that she wanted to do something within the Finance Industry – just wasn’t sure what at the time.
One of her first roles after university was working in the IT department of a large financial services company in London when one of the senior executives plucked her out of there and gave Julie her first big career break.
Julie then went on to qualify as a chartered management accountant and her roles since then have centred around bringing clarity to decision makers around the financial performance and position of their organisations.
Having spent the majority of her career working for large financial institutions in London and Jersey, and after spending time working for another large American bank was not getting much job satisfaction. More importantly, Julie didn’t feel she was fulfilling her true purpose.
Julie and Luke, Clarity CTO, met in 2013 and very shortly afterwards ditched the big corporate life and began a new life advising small businesses. Whilst it may sound a little clichéd, Purpose has given both founder’s working life meaning. Both Luke and Julie are making a real difference to real people’s lives by really caring about their businesses and how they perform.
“The opportunity with Clarity to do this on a global scale is so exciting”.
