Bio

Amanda Brown BA, MSc, DIC Amanda started her career with the Finance Department of Ford Europe having completed a BA in Accountancy and an MSc in Management Science at Imperial College, London. She then spent 11 years in the City working for Barings and Phillips & Drew Fund Management as an Investment Manager. Subsequently, she set up her own independent consultancy advising investment companies on the application of new technology. A move to the countryside, a passion for gardening and a year studying Landscape and Garden Design, led Amanda to establish a landscaping business in 1997 which she continues to run along with a supportive team. She describes the proudest moments of her career: firstly, launching a £110 million specialist, small companies fund for UK based pension funds, and secondly, winning a medal at the Chelsea Flower Show. Her career in the City as an investment manager, has given Amanda a broad experience of analysing a range of public companies in several sectors. Running a small business herself means she relates to the diverse problems faced by owner-managed and small businesses. She heads up Alterra Business Consulting with a team of specialists in finance, business excellence coaching, IT and law.
