WIS People: Fernando, our Head of Finance

Could you introduce yourself and tell us about your role?

I am Fernando, and I’m from Malta.
As the Head of Finance at WIS, my job is to take care of and run the Finance Department of the company, which includes debt collection, improving our relationship with banks and, of course, the most important part: taking care of 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 made the right decision to work here when my ideas all started having positive results!

What was your best day at work?

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

Share something that happened that could only happen at WIS.

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.

An achievement you’re most proud of at work?

I’m proud that I 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, I work closely with the affiliate team – 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 with each other about the different aspects of the business on a day-to-day basis.
