Meet the team: Michael Lanny, Group Financial Controller
We're a friendly bunch here at Everflow Water – we like to get to know our brokers and customers, and show potential employees what we’re all about, so our ‘Meet the Team’ series is here to do just that!
The last post in this series featured our Senior Customer Services Advisor, Ben, and now we’ve brought in Group Financial Controller, Michael, for the fun Q&A (to prove accountants do have a fun side! Sometimes)…
Role: Group Financial Controller
Where are you based? Wynyard (North East)
Favourite thing about working for Everflow? The people
What does a typical working day look like for you? I don’t think there is such thing as a typical day! Looking after the finance function, providing support and information to the board, forecasting, internal controls, risk management, commercials, to name a few
What’s your favourite Everflow company value, and why? We have a value called Responsibility, which is my favourite. Ethics are important to me, and play a big part in the role of a finance professional at any level in an organisation
If a movie was made about your life, what genre would it be? Haven’t you seen ‘The Accountant’ with Ben Affleck?
What’s the one thing you’ve always wanted to do? Sail the world
What’s your favourite animal and why? Cats, because they look after themselves
What’s your favourite meal? Sunday roast
Favourite holiday destination? Anywhere with sun and a beach

Describe yourself in three words: Tall, dark and handsome (I’m 5ft 7…)
