Commercial Expertise


Experienced & comfortable in working with commercial and governance issues with Sodexo and the Chartered Management Institute.

Quickly grasping the dimensions of business issues with her innate ability to make sense of the most complex of issues and the most uncertain of futures, Judy is ever mindful of the implications of choices for all the affected parties. With over 10 years experience of contract management, proposal development and client retention within highly competitive industry sectors, Judy has gained a commercial and financial understanding that can provide extensive added value along with real transferable skills for her clients.

Her finance work has covered such assignments as Sarbanes Oxley implementation, full operational profit & loss responsibility for major accounts, and the preparation of commercial proposals for multi-million international contracts.

Case Studies:

Regulatory Regimes - Took over the stalled implementation requirements of Sarbanes Oxley Section 404 (Internal Controls) within a UK subsidiary that was required, within 3 months, to under go a full internal audit to demonstrate compliance. Judy's work achieved an 80% internal audit score compared to a norm of 45 - 50%. 

Performance Management with Innovative Scorecard - Created a scorecard to regulate the 100% performance-related profit fee of a major contract with Shell (US$ 33 million). This required the application of delicate strategic planning to operational and frontline activity in a sensitive, inclusive and comprehensible manner involving management and staff spread across 15 offshore locations, 3 office complexes in Scotland and two gas plants. In its first year the contract achieved a (US$ 2.7million) reduction in cost while improving service delivery standards and customer satisfaction.

Account Management - Held full Profit & Loss responsibility for a major facilities management contract with Shell Exploration & Production (valued at US$ 4 million per annum) working out of Shell's Aberdeen HQ with 1,500 personnel on site and a service delivery team of 160 personnel. Credited with directing the seamless mobilization of a raft of 22 innovative new services to the site, Judy was awarded the In-house Star Team Award (1996) across the specialist business division of Sodexo.
