Matthew Whitehead - Finance Director

“Every day is different, with new challenges around each corner, from day to day analysis of performance to long term strategic planning.”

“As Finance Director you have to be willing to get involved in all areas of the business, you have to get out of your office, so that you can fully understand how the business is performing and be a part of the team taking the business to where it wants to be in the future”


As Finance Director, Matthew looks after our Financials, HR and ICT functions. 

After graduating from the University of Huddersfield with an Honours degree in Business Studies, Matthew joined accountancy firm KPMG in Leeds and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2001.  After qualification he moved to Grant Thornton in Manchester, before moving back over the Pennines, to accountancy firm Wheawill & Sudworth in Huddersfield. 

It was at Wheawill & Sudworth that Matthew first came into contact with Bulmer & Lumb, and in September 2005 he joined Bulmer & Lumb’s finance team, replacing the retiring Finance Director.

Over the years, as a member of the Board, Matthew has been central in the business’ acquisitions & investments, as well as the day to day running of the business. He was made a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales in 2014

Outside work he enjoys mountain biking, both watching and playing a variety of sports and travelling.
