About this episode

I’m thrilled to be joined by Heather Nisbet, the Group Treasurer at Global Fashion Group, on this episode of the Treasury Career Corner Podcast. During our discussion, we dive into how she built her incredible career and where she sees herself and the treasury profession going next.

Heather graduated from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh with a BSc in Mathematics with First Class Honours. She then continued her studies and gained her CIMA qualification in 2014 followed by the AMCT Diploma in Treasury with Distinctions in 2016, where she was also awarded as the best performing student.

Her first exposure to treasury was as a Treasury Dealer/Cash Management for Tesco in 2013. She then moved into an International Accountant role and later a Senior FX and Energy Dealer role with the same company. In 2016, she moved to Informa as their Risk Manager before progressing to the role of Acting Assistant Group Treasurer in 2017.
