UK lease software firm Innervision has appointed Maeve O’Connell as finance director.
Innervision said the role was created as its lease management business was expanding. O’Connell will also help customers prepare for the upcoming changes to global lease accounting.
O’Connell has over 31 years of experience in finance, 12 of which are in leasing. She started in leasing at Lombard Technology Services, following various finance and accounting roles, including a 12 year stint in private healthcare, where she worked to improve and oversee systems implementations.
Other positions have included UK finance controller at Xerox Finance, focusing on process driven design implementation, treasury manager at Syscap and, most recently, finance controller at Paragon Bank Outsourcing Solutions (formerly Five Arrows Outsourcing Solutions).
O’Connell said: "I’m very process driven and a great believer in systems for making everything more efficient. If I can spend time figuring out how to get a system to do things more efficiently and it gives the pay back tenfold – then it’s worth it.
"Our customers get the benefit of it, so if we can make our processes quicker and more optimised, it’s a win for everyone."
Martin Kennard, Innervision managing director, said: "Innervision’s core business and core team continues to expand and develop. We have reached the point in our development cycle when an experienced finance and operations director has become an essential next step. Maeve brings a wealth of relevant experience from her time in similar businesses and will become a key part of our management and delivery support team."
