Carol Gumbo FCCA

Portfolio CFO

I help fast-growth businesses to scale business operations, improve performance and prepare for investment.

I’m a qualified chartered certified accountant and prior to joining flinder I worked for a German-based medical devices company, the third largest in the world. I was responsible for all the legal and compliance monthly and quarterly reporting, as well as overseeing the external audits and dealing with all tax matters for the UK and Ireland.

Prior to this l worked at Deloitte Propel, where l worked with ambitious startups which were looking to scale quickly and often globally. I was their personal expert to support the businesses as they grew.

Outside of work, l enjoy travelling, reading books and listening to podcasts.
