Sally Ponton FCA
Sally earned a first-class degree in Accountancy & Finance from the University of Kent at Canterbury in 2004. Following a small period of travelling, Sally joined a Kent based firm of Chartered Accountants where she successfully qualified as a Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2009.
Upon qualification Sally moved into industry to work for a regional college and remained within the group for 9 years. During this time Sally took on the roles of Financial Accountant and Commercial Manager.
Working in industry exposed Sally to external challenges and budgetary constraints that businesses encounter. Working closely with the Senior Management Team allowed Sally to understand the external and internal risks businesses face.
In 2019 Sally took the opportunity to join Professional Trust Group, giving her the opportunity to share her experience gained in industry, whilst working closely (sometimes on a daily basis) with clients – which is often uncommon in accountancy practices.
