Sally Williams-McGlone is an exceptional person. I first met Sally when she was the Business and Finance Manager at Hungerhill School when it converted to Academy status. Her ability to deliver clarity and precision in an extremely testing scenario was, frankly, incredible. She has a fantastic work ethos and a keen eye for detail, whilst at the same time being able to see the wider context. Her role was far more than finance alone. I rarely endorse unreservedly, but in Sally's case I have absolutely no hesitation in doing so. Whether your business is education or not, Sally should most definitely be on your list.
