Law firm unveils experienced finance boss

Flint Bishop's new finance director Nelson Gonzalez with CEO Qamer Ghafoor

Flint Bishop has appointed a new finance director to help sustain its strategic growth plans.

Nelson Gonzalez brings more than 20 years’ experience in accounts and finance to the Derby- and Birmingham-based law firm.

Gonzalez has worked for a variety of well-known retailers including Specsavers and Jessops and once led the UK finance team of a global multi-billion-dollar service sector business.

Most recently, he was commercial finance director for the Children & Young People division of a £500m social care provider.

At Flint Bishop, Gonzalez will be heavily involved in financial and risk management operations and the ongoing development and monitoring of control systems designed to protect and enhance financial performance across the firm.

Flint Bishop CEO Qamer Ghafoor said: “Nelson is an established finance leader. His experience in evaluating, strategising, and delivering commercial opportunities will be a major asset to Flint Bishop. His extensive breath of finance knowledge spans numerous market sectors and multiple disciplines, many of which will be crucial as the firm looks to transition towards a more business partner focused structure.

“Nelson is a significant hire for the firm and will play a notable part in our commitment to our ambitious growth strategy over the coming months and years. These are exciting times for Flint Bishop.”
