Name: Michile Riley
Job Role: Finance Director
Q. How long have you worked at Technical Absorbents (TAL)?
I have managed the finance team at TAL for 16 years. It’s a great team to work in.
Q. If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do, what would it be?
Finance Director is my official title. However, one of my key skills is nagging people where I see any potential opportunity to save money 😊 I think everyone at TAL would agree with me on that!
Q. What are the values that drive you?
Self- reliance & determination are key values that drive me and have certainly been fundamental in my career progression. I have a strong work ethic and that is something that is very important, especially when you work within a small team.
Q. What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
You only get out of life what you put in! That is the same at home and in the workplace.
Q. Where's your favourite place you've travelled to?
Definitely New Zealand and Australia because I love the culture and what I feel to be a far more relaxed way of life. Also, the wine is excellent! I can’t wait to get back out there when COVID-19 allows!
