Andrea Masson is a Senior Manager within our Virtual Finance Function (VFF) team. She works with a diverse portfolio of clients, mainly in the UK, but others based in Sweden, Canada and the United States.  

Based in our Aberdeen office, Andrea provides invaluable support to her clients. Some have their own in-house finance team but need support with management accounts, while others require a full Virtual Finance Function including processing, management accounts, VAT returns, payroll and statutory accounts. VFF works so well because clients can pick and choose exactly what services they need.  


“Having an open and responsive relationship with my clients is important. Having regular interaction through Teams calls makes such a difference. I may be sitting in a different office, but it should feel like I’m part of my client’s team. It’s not only about building a working relationship. Getting to know the people you’re in regular contact with makes every day so much more enjoyable.” 


“There’s one part of my job that I find really satisfying. I love the challenge of improving the quality of information provided to management, to allow effective decision making for them in running their businesses.  

Often a problem can be solved by suggesting new technology or an app. Something relatively simple can save time and make a world of difference, and my clients may not even know that help is out there.” 


“I trained at AAB many years ago, and then worked in industry for 13 years, for international, owner managed, and private equity-backed companies. This experience really helps me in what I do today. I can relate to the real issues that businesses face, the sort of hurdles that they come up against.  

Often my clients will recommend us to other companies and may engage with us to take on additional work. This indicates that my clients are happy with the service I provide to them.”  


“We’re not just good at dealing with the numbers, we’re good at dealing with people. This applies to both working with clients and with members of our own team. Our success is down to the individuals. It’s the people that make it work.” 

  • Having AAB as our business partners gives me peace of mind as they listen, participate and work with us to ensure our goals are achieved.
