About Jackie Fisher 
 
Jackie Fisher, newly appointed CEO of A Algeo Ltd, trained with Ernst & Young in Leeds prior to moving to its Sydney office. Her first financial director role was at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). She says: "LIPA is a well-known organisation because of its connections with Paul McCartney, who - yes - I did get to meet!" 
 
Since then, Jackie has gained much experience in other businesses, including as GFC at a company during its sale and acquisition by a private equity house. Of her time as FD at Thyson Technology, based in the Wirral, she says: "This role required significant change management. I enjoyed my time there and worked closely with the three directors who were the original owners prior to an investment from a private investor consortium." 
 
From Thyson, Jackie joined Algeos as FD in October, 2015, before becoming CEO in October 2016.
