Other previous roles include, from 2011 to 2013, Finance Director of Lifestyle Services Group, an insurance administrator and outsourcing provider, and from 2009 to 2011, Commercial Finance Director of Shop Direct Group, the owner of the consumer brands Littlewoods and Very, which transitioned from a traditional mail order and high street retail business, to an online retailer with revenues of £1.5 billion.


Prior to this, for ten years Mr. Clancy worked at MyTravel plc, where he was Finance Director of the Airtours division and Managing Director of Going Places, a high street retailer with 500 stores throughout the UK employing 3000 staff.


He is an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.
