Andy Jones Managing Director
"We are a dynamic team that believes that the whole is better that the sum of our parts. We celebrate our differences and our different perspectives and use this to improve our decision making."
As Finance Director, I manage the Finance team at Totus and am responsible for managing the finance function, overseeing the company’s strategic growth, commercial business plans and forecasting. I am dedicated to a plan for continuous improvement across the team, with the aim of improving our supply chain management and customer service delivery. We believe that we can always do better and strive to do so.
I was involved in the initial set-up of Totus and named the company. Since then, I have been dedicated to shaping the organisations future, to make it the best possible version of itself. Working with the management team to ensure that we are a dynamic business that is continually looking forward with optimism, regardless of the environmental context that the company finds itself in. Helping the company charts its path and ensuring that as a management team, we are always looking up rather than down or inwardly, to spot those great opportunities.
I am a chartered accountant (FCA) with the Chartered Institute for Accountants England and Wales and have a first class degree in Business from Manchester University. Prior to working with Totus I worked for one of the ‘Big Four’ accountancy firms, Ernst and Young, in Audit and tax. Working with small companies and large multinationals and spending time overseas.
In my spare time I am a singer. This has resulted in some great opportunities supporting high profile singers and bands. I primarily sing with a gospel choir which has resulted in travel all over the world. My other hobbies include cooking, playing the guitar and dancing ballroom and latin.
