Finance Partner

Hi I’m Rebecca the Finance Partner for APX. I started out as an auditor on my path to becoming a Chartered Accountant and moved into industry once qualified.  My first role in travel ignited my passion for the industry and I’ve since spent the past 11 years working across various travel companies and hotels. The key part of my title for me is “Partner”.  I’m a firm believer that finance is more than just numbers! So my focus is using the numbers to work with the business to help make decisions and make improvements for all stakeholders - helping APX, and our clients, to drive results.
