Finance is not only dealing with numbers, but ensuring your process is connected with the leaders and their various functions across the organization.

The owners are working in the business each day, and I am excited to bring forward my experience to ensure continued growth and expansion for the future.”
“I am excited to work with Tim. He has proven experience in developing relevant management information and introducing best practices in financial reporting,” added Reid.

Warner’s experience will support future growth, building on history and financial strength to continue Paladin’s vision and dedication to change the way people think about security.
