Mrs Cecilia Lane

Current Job

Director of Legal Finance Professionals Ltd

Profile

I attended St Joseph’s Convent School, Kenilworth from 1976 to 1982. After leaving school, I trained and worked as an accountant in private practice with Baker Tilly, a leading middle tier national firm of Chartered Accountants and, more lately, Armstrong Scarborough a Coventry based firm. I then moved into industry and was employed as the Financial Accountant of Gulf Fund plc, a company whose portfolio included The Warwickshire Golf Club.

During the time my son was at St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School, I assisted in the Reception class on a voluntary basis. I also served as a Committee member of the school PTA for five years, including three years in the capacity of Treasurer.

Since 2007 I have been a director of Legal Finance Professionals Limited, a company which my husband and I founded and run together. Legal Finance Professionals Limited is one of the leading providers of regulatory and compliance training and consultancy services to the legal sector in England and Wales.

My son, Daniel, attended Princethorpe College until 2013 and after a further year spent working as a Teaching Assistant at the College is now studying Economics and Finance at the University of Exeter.

I am a member of the Parish of St Francis and St Augustine’s in Kenilworth and my interests include reading, sewing, trying to paint and watching Wasps win!

I feel very privileged to have been asked to become a Trustee and be part of the team responsible for shaping the ongoing development of The Foundation.
