STA Appoints New Director of Finance

STA has appointed Stuart Tanfield to the new role of Director of Finance.


Stuart, a qualified chartered accountant who has extensive financial experience working within industry and in practice as a consultant for charities, education bodies and the public sector, will work closely with the existing team of directors to manage and oversee all financial aspects of the STA, from setting strategic budgets to monitoring projects.

“This is an exciting and challenging role,” said Stuart, who joined the organisation at the beginning of February. “STA is a complex business with many different income streams and it is experiencing significant growth in the digital side of the business, which is very exciting.”

“Although my experience in accountancy practice has been invaluable, the skills I have gained within industry have enabled me to see past the numbers so that I can understand the effects they have on people. This is especially important for STA because it is a member-focused charitable organisation.”

Welcoming Stuart to the team, Roger Millward, CEO of STA, said: “Stuart is a welcome addition to the team and brings a wealth of financial experience to the organisation.

“His appointment will strengthen the senior management team to ensure we continue with our success and maintain our charitable objectives. With STA experiencing such rapid year-on-year growth, it became increasingly obvious that the time had come to appoint a chartered accountant who will help run STA finances both on a day-to-day basis, while looking at our analytical and strategic planning.”
