Finance Manager

With a background in agriculture and the wooden boat industry, Lucie joined the Sylva team in 2023 as part-time Finance Manager.

She trained at Brooksby Agricultural College and worked for many years on Farms and Estates in Oxfordshire and Berkshire before turning her accounting and administrative skills to the family business – Colin, her husband, is a traditional wooden boatbuilder. Since 2017 Colin has been based in one of the commercial units at Sylva so Lucie was well aware of the work of the Sylva Foundation before coming on board. She brings to the role an unerring love of spreadsheets and enjoys the variety of the work, the team spirit and camaraderie and the home-made cakes at coffee time.
