WIS People: Fernando, our Head of Finance

Posted on 13/06/2022

Could you introduce yourself and tell us about your role?

I am Fernando, hailing from the island of Malta.
As Head of Finance at WIS, I shoulder the responsibility of handling debt collection, improving our relationships with banks, and, of course, ensuring the seamless administration of our payroll. 

What was the moment you knew you’d made the right decision to work here?

Since I was the first to be employed in a finance role by the company, I was responsible for introducing various accounting and HR-related processes. I realised that I'd made the right choice to work here when I saw my ideas starting to yield positive results!

What has been your best day at work?

I have had many a 'best day' at WIS, but, to me, managing to collect money from very difficult debtors is the most satisfying of all.

Share something that happened that could only happen at WIS.

While it's not a particular thing that happened, at WIS I feel that I am respected as an employee. I'm not treated just like a number, which is how I felt in many of my previous jobs.

A work-related achievement you're most proud of?

I'm proud of having managed to introduce various accounting software systems, which have helped everyone at WIS to track and better understand their leave entitlements.

Which team member is the most helpful for you and why?

This is a very difficult question, as everyone at WIS is super co-operative and willing to pitch in. However, since I work closely with the affiliate team, here's a shout-out to Oksana and Katrin, who are always highly accommodating and ready to help. Of course, due to the nature of my role, I also have a strong work relationship with Evelyn from our People Department. We share our knowledge about the different aspects of the business with each other on a day-to-day basis.
