Who are you?
I am Edd Hatfield, CFO at BOOST&Co
What do you do?
I’m responsible for the smooth running of the financial and reporting side of BOOST, including investor reporting, budgeting, fund finance, compliance and accounts
What is your most memorable holiday?
My honeymoon was awesome — we went on safari, then to the Maldives and Sri Lanka. A great mix of culture, relaxation and luxury that I’m normally too tight to pay for!
What is your favourite sport to watch and play?
I’m a huge football and cricket fan, and play both with varying but limited degrees of success.
What was your first job?
I worked in a video store, and was paid to sit and watch films all day whilst eating junk food. Doesn’t get much better than that!
What is your favourite thing about your job?
Accountancy can obviously be a bit dull sometimes, but the variety within my job more than compensates, and it gives me an insight into a wide range of businesses.
What is one thing you will never do again?
Skiing – having narrowly avoided serious harm the one time I tried. Also a toddler who could barely walk was far better than me, so it’s definitely not worth the embarrassment!
What can’t you work without?
Excel. Even the guestlist for my wedding was on a spreadsheet!
What’s your proudest accomplishment?
My son, though I think most of the credit for the birth should go to my wife really
