Access Group chief financial officer Adam Brown has been named as one of the top 20 financial directors in the technology, media and telcoms (TMT) sector.
He received the honour at the Hot 20 FDs in TMT competition awards ceremony, hosted by accountants and business advisers BDO LLP, in recognition of his talents and achievements in the last 12 months.
Access, a specialist in business and accounting software, based at Stratford St Mary, appointed Mr Brown as chief financial officer in September 2011, to drive revenue growth, both organic and through merger and acquisition, after a £50million management buy-out backed by Lyceum Capital earlier that year.
He said: “I’m delighted to have been recognised in the awards. I’m a firm believer that our customers’ success will invariably lead to our own success. Investing in commercially viable areas that bring true value to the customer will have a positive impact on the bottom line and drive profits as a result.”
Last year, he was instrumental in launching Access’s flagship product, aCloud, which recently gained recognition for the company as a finalist in the Innovation category of the National Business Awards.

Mr Brown has more than 20 years’ experience in the technology sector. He has previously held chief finance officer roles in Avid Technology, a video and editing software specialist, Sibelius Software, which develops music software for professional musicians, teachers and students, and Workshare, a leading document comparison software provider for the legal sector.
