Name: Ciaron Murphy.

Title: Chief Financial Officer.

Duration at SunDoctors: Almost six months – I joined at the end of January 2017.

Previous role / industry: Retail – in women’s clothing and accessories.

Role and responsibilities: As CFO, I have overall responsibility for a number of key areas, including:

Financial reporting – communicating our performance to key stakeholders, including doctors, practice managers, the Board and the Government.

Day-to-day operations – managing the cash, paying invoices, paying staff and doctors, raining funds.

Compliance – ensuring we meet all legal and professional requirements.

Commercial accounting – planning and budgeting, project analysis and support for CFO and management team. Of course, I would not be able to do my role without the assistance of my very talented Finance and Payroll team.

Best thing about the role: The people I work with. It’s a challenging sector and very different to retail. However, I have really enjoyed the transition and I can’t speak highly enough of the doctors, clinic teams, Pathology and the head office staff I’ve met so far. I look forward to meeting more of the team in the coming months!

Down-time: When I’m not working, my time is divided between supporting the Chelsea Football Club, Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, my dog Murphy…and my Man Cave! I also like to hang out with the family if there is any time left over!
