Lynne began her career as an Chartered Accountant when she trained with Arthur Andersen and Co in London and Leeds. She moved into the corporate world, working for many years with Tate & Lyle plc, where she had several Financial leadership roles.She also worked on major integrations and mergers, which led her to join Cancer Research UK at its formation in 2002. She was Chief Financial Officer for 11 years, leading the technology, risk, finance and Treasury teams. Her interest in change and development meant she was involved in many developments there, including the Francis Crick Institute.

Recently, Lynne has worked with the YMCA, in a strategic support role to the CEO and Board, and has taken on a Trustee role in the Tate & Lyle Pension Scheme. Lynne became Treasurer of Prostate Cancer UK in January 2018.

Having stepped away from full time London Commuting life, Lynne has taken time to develop two long term loves - singing and golf. One is going very well and the other is ruining some lovely walks on the course!
