Peter Houghton

Financial Controller

What does your job role entail?

My role encompasses all the usual aspects of financial management, treasury, reporting and admin.

What makes you passionate about your job?

In Finance you are at the beating heart of the business and you see the impact of all business decisions coming though in the figures and reports

Why did you choose to work at Harrison’s?

I was really happy when I heard there was an opportunity with Harrisons. It is an interesting combination of business with some complexity that make it attractive whilst having all the usual opportunities and issues.

What makes Harrison’s different to other companies?

Harrison operates in very niche areas and is continually challenging itself to improve the customer experience. It’s size means it can control its service more directly than some organisations.

What does a typical day look like for you?

Ask me again in six months though I can imagine it will involve a whole host of different activities.

If you could try another profession, what would it be?

On reflection I would have enjoyed being a vet – that Irish guy is something else!

Favourite hobbies / interests out of work?

Simple pleasures include walking my dog Teddy, watching Hartlepool play football, of sorts, attempting a few gym sessions each week and, of course, beer!

What would your colleagues say about you?

Passionate, collaborative, challenging and supportive.
