My name is Mark Torrie; Treasurer for Neighbourhood Networks.
I am an accountant and started my career in London with the accountancy firm Grant Thornton LLP. Following 6 years working with them I secured a Finance Manager role at Comcast International Media Group, probably best known in this country for their Hollywood gossip T.V. channel E!.
After 8 years in London I made my way back up the road to Scotland, and after stints at RBS and Barclays banks I took up my current position at Wheatley Housing Group. In my current role as Financial Planner I have gained a lot of insight into the Care sector, particularly the funding pressures that have been experienced for a number of years. It was this that led to me volunteering for the Board of Trustees, such that I can offer any knowledge I may have to assist Neighbourhood Networks achieve their goals.
