Meeting Ivana Tolfree – Group Finance Manager

Tell us a bit about your background and life before Reedbut
Well I am actually a qualified teacher, however I always knew finance was my passion!

What is it that interests you about working in the corrugated board industry?
Finance is the same everywhere, is the people you work with who make a difference and I love working with the team here at Reedbut.

What do you see as the biggest challenges of working in this industry?
For me its the fast pace, we always need to stay on our toes as the industry moves so quickly. I find this is the biggest challenge, although it does mean that every day is always different….and interesting!

What’s your business philosophy or mantra and why?
The saying I have always lived by is “a vision is a dream with a plan” – a vision is always achievable as long as you have a plan of what you want to achieve and how you will get there.

What is a typical day like for you at Reedbut? What does your job involve?
It is always down to me to ensure that the finance department provides accurate reports on time every time.

What drives you, both professionally and personally
Simply my family

Tell us a fun fact about you
Well I have recently discovered that even after 22 years of  living in England I am still using words which I really don’t know the full meaning of!

Keep an eye out for future Meet the Team blogs where we will introduce other key members of our team and find out a little more about them!
