Brian Currie Milton Keynes DAF
Managing Director of (Milton Keynes) Limited
I am a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant, and joined Brian Currie Milton Keynes Limited almost fifteen years ago, initially as Finance & IT Director, however, since 2017 this has been as Joint Managing Director.
I started my career in finance at Audi Volkswagen in Milton Keynes. After five years there I decided to further my career and joined Texas Instruments in Bedford where I stayed for thirteen years carrying out a variety of finance and business roles both in the UK and abroad. From there I worked for Cooper Standard Automotive in their International Division supporting both the Sealing and Fluid divisions. Having travelled a lot in my previous roles, I decided I wanted to stay closer to home, although not sure the family totally agreed.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the opportunities and challenges, which these roles have provided, but mainly as they have allowed me to work with different cultures around the globe, and meet with some great individuals and teams along the way.
These roles and experiences, hopefully moulded me into more than just a “bean counter” or “geek”! However, for those that feel the need to comment this can be sent to me on the back of a £50 note.
