Sandeep is the numbers man and as Group Financial Controller, he is responsible for the Financial Operations of all of the venues under North Collective.
With over a decade of hospitality experience in financial management, 8 years being with Accor Hotels before moving to Norths Collective, Sandeep plays a key role, not only ensuring financial sustainability and maintaining consistency across all financial systems and reporting, but also in supporting the CEO and Board of Directors on development strategies for the group, thus driving forward and directly impacting long term growth.
Armed with a Master’s in Professional Accounting and a CPA, Sandeep thrives in the hospitality environment. A particular area in which he takes a keen interest, flows from his firm belief in the importance of guest experience, staff wellbeing and ongoing innovation. A person that he admires for his ability to motivate people and generate the best performance from his employees is the entrepreneur and notable all round creative genius Richard Branson. Sandeep firmly believes and lives by the words “Take care of your employees, and they’ll take care of your business”.
As a key member of the leadership team, having a personality of caring about people is very important, and Sandeep is known at Norths Collective as a kind-hearted, warm and approachable kind of guy. His values are clearly evident and in addition to being commercially astute and driving discipline across controllable lines, has been part of what has made him so effective as financial controller.
When Sandeep is not balancing spreadsheets, he’s out walking, exploring on his bike or getting creative in the kitchen. As balance comes in many forms – baking and then assuming the role as chief tester is another one of his many talents.
