Accountancy Age Awards 2010 FD of the Year Growing Business - Ian Little

awards 2010 logoYou could measure Ian Little’s success by profit figures alone, but that would only tell half the story. The group finance director of Access Technology Group (ATG) has helped steer the company through a tough year, but one which saw it emerge stronger and healthier. 

Little guided the company through acquisitions, a significant re-casting of the business plan, consolidation of four trading companies and a change of business model.

Despite the recession, ATG exceeded revenue and profit targets, achieving 17% profit before tax. The business also saw turnover increase by £1.54m (7%) to £24.6m. The company puts this success down to Little’s tough budgeting and monitoring.

Judges described ATG’s submission as excellent. 

“It shows outstanding performance, across significant breadth of responsibilities… It’s clear that the last 12 months have been critical for the company and Ian has played a very influential role in its success and growth,” the judges said.
