“I never sit still & accept the status quo; there is always room for improvement.”

As a Partner in our Virtual Finance Function team, Stephen Smyth’s role is to deliver the absolute best in finance department solutions across the island of Ireland. Stephen helps a wide range of clients across a variety of sectors, from owner managed businesses to large international organisations.

MAKING A TANGIBLE DIFFERENCE

“For me, an ideal client relationship is one where, from the client’s perspective, I deliver a level of client service that makes a tangible difference to how that business operates, with it’s finance department becoming a driver of efficiency, strategy, and growth. From my side, knowing the client truly values what I am bringing to their business is what I want to see.”

EXPANDING EXPECTATIONS

“I generally find the initial client expectation is that their numbers are right and on time but when they start to see the power of data and an experienced team of finance professionals, these expectations grow into partnering with their finance department to really drive positive change through process improvements, cost control, and identifying growth opportunities.”

THE BEAUTY OF QUALITY DATA

“I never sit still and accept the status quo, there is always room for improvement and a better way of doing things. That’s the beauty of quality data, it can be analysed in so many different ways to effectively support decision making at all levels of an organisation.”

THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE

“I bring a wealth of experience in accounting, finance and operations management across Ireland, the UK and North America. I’ve held the most senior finance positions in owner managed businesses to international groups and believe my pursuit of excellence in building and delivering a best-in-class finance department that is an integral part of overall business management and strategy setting has made a real difference wherever I’ve been.”

THE BEST COMPLIMENT

“The compliment I love receiving from clients is “the solution you’ve put in place is working really well” – it’s simple, but it’s all I ever want to hear.”
