ISP: SENIOR MANAGEMENT TEAM
Divisional CFO – Middle East and Europe
Will grew up in Surrey, UK and went to Leeds University where he studied French and Spanish. He met his wife while spending a year abroad in Granada, Spain. Will’s dad and both of his grandfathers were chartered accountants so there was a certain inevitability he would follow in their footsteps, despite being adamant when younger that he would not do so under any circumstances! He was keen to use his language skills and after qualifying he joined Inchcape plc where he spent 10 years in international roles across internal audit, M&A and finance including four years as Regional Finance Director for South America, based in Santiago. The experience of living in Chile, enabled Will to realise his ambition of travelling around the region, in addition to honing his Spanish language skills and discovering the pisco sour drink which he believes is the world’s greatest cocktail.
In 2013 Will decided to return to the UK where he moved into the private education sector, joining Galileo Global Education as Group Financial Director where he set up the finance function. In 2017 he moved into K-12 education, joining Inspired Education Group initially as Finance Director for Europe before moving to a M&A Integration role. Will joined the International Schools Partnership (ISP) as Regional Finance Director for Mexico & Central America and progressed to be Group Head of Finance before moving into his current role as Divisional CFO. He enjoys supporting growing businesses and learning about and understanding different cultures.
Will lives in Surrey with his wife and two children. He enjoys most sports, especially rugby and tennis, and likes to get out into the countryside for long walks when possible (preferably involving a stop off at a local pub!).
