About Emma Brown
A commercial and pragmatic senior finance leader, I bring an entrepreneurial, agile and inclusive approach to solving complex business problems. I am a high energy and resourceful executive who enjoys inspiring others to push the boundaries of what is possible to deliver exceptional commercial results.
With over 10 years leadership experience, I have managed broad remits including Finance, People & Culture, Commercial Strategy, Legal, Risk and Compliance, Customer Insights, Marketing and IT functions. I am an influential strategic partner to CEOs, executive teams & boards to drive commercial performance, pursue excellence in processes, and develop constructive organisational cultures in order to scale sustainably. I believe in leadership by example, attracting the best talent and nurturing and developing them to achieve business goals.
Starting my journey within the Big 4 in the UK and Australia, I have since forged a successful fast-tracked career in high growth PE and ASX listed companies, and have also gained valuable experience in the for purpose space. With a passion for digital transformation and a keen eye for detail, I have a proven track record of delivering best practice, scalable processes, and driving revenue and profit growth in every role undertaken.
I bring a coaching style of leadership to my teams and believe in using my success and expertise to support others to achieve. I was awarded the UN Women NCA MBA scholarship and was a finalist in the 2020 Telstra Business Women’s award in recognition of my work in creating career opportunities for women and improving gender diversity through policy and flexibility.
