Joanne Horbury

PA to the Managing Director, Accounts Payable (yep she’s mean) Specialist Form Filler, just getting stuff done...Jo’s way!

Jo has the unenviable task of being PA to the Managing Director. Admittedly, it’s a tough gig, but somebody has to sort him out!

Joanne joined us 12 years ago following her maternity break from Royal Sun Alliance. Having worked at RSA for 15 years as a claims and account manager, she had the perfect skills to bring to our commercial fencing business.

Her day to day role is to provide support to the MD and handle the accounts payable/ Sage.

Jo has a real determination to get stuff done and is a true perfectionist. If there’s a penny missing, Jo will find it! She works closely with Suzanne to ensure our accounts are immaculate, and our supply chain is paid on time (religiously).

Outside of work, Jo’s family commitments mean that she seldom has any free time…. both daughters dance at an elite level, so evenings are spent “dropping off and picking up”. In between Jo is a keen walker and can be seen out every morning, roaming the hills of Calderdale with the family’s new addition Max.

Jo is a keen traveller and skier and loves a girly trip. A real social butterfly and always in the thick of the action, but never scared to wash up at a party!!

Chris on Jo:
Having known Jo for 25 years, it’s fair to say that there’s not much we don’t know about each other. She’s my other half at work, doing the stuff that needs doing, but in a tireless uncompromising way. Always polite, always professional, Jo is a brilliant and key member of our team.
