Stuart Oliver

Finance Manager


Hi, I am the Finance Manager and Company Secretary for Active Lancashire and part of the Senior Leadership Team. My role is to manage the finance function for the organisation, supporting the various projects with financial advice and support, reporting the financial performance to the Board of Directors and the Chief Executive, dealing with all funding claims and returns that we are required to submit to funding bodies and liaising with external partners such as auditors, bank and insurance company.

My Company Secretary role is to support the Board and Chief Executive in their governance and strategic role and ensure that statutory returns are submitted.

Prior to joining Active Lancashire in August 2015 I worked for Lancashire County Developments for 10 years managing a Commercial and grant finance service and providing a Business Partner support to a number of not for Profit companies including Active Lancashire.

My career before 2005 was very much in the private sector running the Finance function and sitting on management teams including 5 years as Finance Director and Company Secretary of a window manufacturing Company, 2 years as Financial Controller at a health food company and 7 years as Finance Manager at a chemical manufacturing and research organisation.

My life has always involved an active interest in sport although these days my participation seems to be as a taxi service and support to my three kids who are active in school sport as well as local clubs. I am a big fan of Preston North End (Are there any other teams in Lancashire?), a very retired local league footballer, lapsed squash player and was a keen but poor golfer…the rusted clubs will one day be resurrected! The ambition is now to be the office Table Tennis champ!
