Laura McGhie, Commercial Finance Manager, Cumbernauld

Head Office-based Laura (30) from Uddingston feels there is a great opportunity for the company to grow internationally. And this is one of the areas she is responsible for in her role.

Prior to working for A.G. Barr Laura trained as a Chartered Accountant with Ernst & Young. She said: "As a Commercial Finance Manager I work as a Business Partner for the Commercial Teams. I specifically look after Marketing, International and our On-Trade channels.

"I think the culture makes being an A.G. Barr employee unique. Working for A.G. Barr you get the invaluable experience of working for a FTSE 250 p.l.c."

Tell us something interesting about you?

I am a keen traveller. I love to explore foreign countries, experience different cultures and the scenery and sights that they have to offer. I also like to keep fit and so last year my husband and I travelled to Peru to trek the Inca Trail. It was an amazing experience.
