Sam Turnock

Financial Controller

Job title:

Financial Controller

What your role entails:

My role will be to take full ownership of the finance function of the business, leading the company’s financial accounting, reporting and management activities. Over time I’ll be looking at working with the business intelligence side of the business to identify & monitor KPIs that ensure the team are making data led decisions.

Who inspires you in business:

Anyone who decides to set up their own business. It takes a mix of entrepreneurship, optimism and ambition; kudos to anyone who bites the bullet and gives it a go.

Biggest career achievement:

Before moving to CheckdMedia I completed my ICAEW Chartered Accountant qualification, which has provided me with a strong foundation of financial knowledge and business analytical skills.

What you do in your spare time:

I have lived in Manchester with my wife since 2015 and we’ve grown to love the city, especially the bar and restaurant scene. We share a passion for exploring and visiting new countries; at any point in time we will be planning the next adventure. Next up – South America. I’m a keen but hopelessly average golfer, so I snatch any opportunity to play during the summer. More recently I’ve been getting back into running – doing a marathon is definitely on the bucket list.
