  4. 4. Brian Rainford ACMA Testimonials “ Brian was a pleasure to work with; he has a very methodical approach and has the ability to make financial processes easy to follow for those of us who are not dealing in detailed financial matters on a day to day basis. The level of support my team and I received from Brian was fantastic; his patience and determination to understand the detail of matters from an Engineering perspective was a first when compared to previous Finance Managers.  This led to his involvement in key negotiations which would previously have been conducted by Engineering in isolation, one particular example I recall was our &quot;Trent engine total care&quot; discussions with Rolls Royce, Brian brought considerable benefits to this process and was a key member of the team.   Whoever secures Brian's services for future employment will be very fortunate.”   Ian Clark, General Manager – Base Maintenance, Thomas Cook Airline Engineering To view a range of my case studies click here >>>> <<<<

  7. 7. Brian Rainford ACMA Testimonials “ I worked with Brian for six months at Thomas Cook Airlines. I joined TCA in July 2010, as part of a small team of four responsible for reporting, treasury and financial control. Brian had recently moved over from managing a different department to managing this team. This function had recently moved back to Manchester, after being performed for a brief period at the group’s Head Office in Peterborough. This meant that all team members were new to their roles. Furthermore, the disruption caused by the move to Peterborough and back meant that there were some considerable issues that needed to be fixed. I was very impressed with how Brian was always able to manage his time between his own projects, correcting and improving the issues that had built up, teaching his new team how to perform the tasks required in their roles, and assisting anybody else that would come to him with questions or problems. He always had time for you if you asked his advice on something. I could not have hoped for a better handover. By the time Brian left in December, he had taught me everything I needed to carry out my role as financial accountant. Brian was very well regarded in the department as a whole, and seemed to be the first port of call for most people if they had a problem that they couldn’t solve on their own. He was a very central character in the office and everybody was very sorry to see him leave.” David Sanderson, Financial Accountant, Thomas Cook Airlines To view a range of my case studies click here >>>> <<<<
