We are very pleased to introduce Sophie Irvine as our new Finance Manager at Collective Architecture. Sophie joined the practice at the beginning of March and will be overseeing all aspects of Finance.
Sophie has come to us after 11 years with BoConcept Scotland. As their Business Support Manager and a member of their senior management team, she was responsible for all aspects of the company’s finances, building and maintaining a secure financial footing which allowed the company to triple in size over a five year period.
Sophie’s technical background is balanced with her natural ability to communicate ideas and feedback effectively across all levels of business. She is a firm believer in treating others fairly and respectfully, and was praised by her previous employers for her ability to deal with both individual and sensitive business information in a calm and tactful manner. The combination of these skills has earned Sophie promotions within every job role during her career, so far, which is something Collective Architecture plans to nurture into the future.
Additional to Sophie’s fantastic grounding in Business Support, she has a passion for design and its power to transform society. Sophie was enticed to the role of Finance Manager at Collective Architecture, based on the care for design quality and sustainability, as well as the opportunity to be part of an employee-owned business. Sophie’s educational background includes a degree in Interior Design at the Glasgow School of Art, which provides a well-rounded view on all aspects required for our design-focused organisation.
We are enormously proud to have Sophie on board and we are very excited about our future working together!
