I am Melanie Stevens, a Senior Associate at Finerva. I joined the company in 2017 as the very first employee.

I have several roles at Finerva. I am the company financial controller, overseeing the internal financial processes.

In addition, I support Seema, our Head of Accounting, in managing the team of Account Managers and have a number of clients myself. I am also EIS accredited.

Prior Roles:

  • In-house Financial Support for 4th Screen Advertising/Opera Mediaworks.
  • 10 years’ experience as an Equity Derivatives Trading Analyst
  • Associate Director for UBS and Lehman Brothers

What I most enjoy about working for Finerva is that every day brings a new challenge. Working with start-ups and scale-ups gives me exposure to a broad and diverse range of industries and personalities. I am as excited by learning from them as I am by supporting them and helping them grow their businesses.

Outside of the office, I enjoy dragging my children on walks in the countryside. They especially seem to enjoy the steep uphill variety. I love literature, particularly when I can enjoy it with the sound of the Mediterranean Sea lapping in the background. I also spend many a weekend trying to emulate the contestants of Great British Bake Off – although I haven’t quite got over losing out to Stu for 1st prize in our mini company bake off last year.
