Eddie Smith

Finance Director, Leadership Team, Quill

Following his promotion from Finance Controller to Finance Director early 2023, Eddie’s responsible for maintaining the financial accounts of all divisions within the Quill group – both legal software and outsourced services. In addition, Eddie provides detailed financial management information to our directors in line with agreed timetables as well as on an ad hoc basis upon request.

With clear insights into Quill’s financial status and performance, Eddie plays a key role in quarterly forecasting and preparation of annual budgets.

In terms of previous experience, Eddie has worked in both accountancy practice and wider industry; most recently in the crisp, popcorn and chocolate manufacturing sectors. In his last post for a luxury chocolate producer, Eddie managed the finance, costing and administration team.

Eddie’s a fellow of the ACCA; an accreditation he maintains with a minimum of 40 hours’ new learning every year as part of a continued professional development programme.

Eddie cycles to the office as a means of making use of the time commuting for fitness thereby saving himself a trip to the gym later on! He spends his leisure time with his wife, Ava, and their three young children. The rest of his spare time is split between catching up with friends and family, various DIY jobs around the house, and playing or watching football.
