Lin Freathy has an outstanding finance background. She rose steadily through the ranks at BT, taking on many varied roles within the company including corporate support, system design, business analyst and financial controller. A feature of many of these roles was the need to turn problems around and move the business forward. Lin ultimately reached the position of VP Finance for the Global Customer Support Organisation of BT’s Global Services Division - where she was responsible for a P&L of more than £200 million.
