As Chief Financial Officer, Alan Burns controls the purse strings at PhotoBox Group: a role and responsibility he has held since 2011. This was the year that PhotoBox completed its acquisition of Moonpig.com, delivering multiple new revenue streams and serving to create a Group with a turnover well in excess of £100m per annum. Alan is responsible for managing the Group’s financials. He works closely with Board colleagues and with senior management to ensure that clear financial objectives are established – and adhered to – in the pursuit of sustainable, profitable expansion. Under Alan’s stewardship, PhotoBox has displayed strong organic growth. Alan’s focus and that of his team is to look continuously for organic and acquisition opportunities to expand the Group’s global presence, complement its exciting product and service range, and drive earnings growth. Alan has significant financial experience in addition to strong internet credentials. He joined PhotoBox in 2011 from Autoquake where he held the position of Chief Financial Officer and prior to that he worked for Expedia Inc., helping to globalise that business as VP Finance for Hotels.com Worldwide and Venere.com. Alan has also previously served as VP Finance for Expedia Europe, providing financial leadership for that organisation during a period of major international expansion in Europe. Alan is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (FCA) and qualified at KPMG, where he started his career, working for almost six years in both audit and transaction services.
