Vice Chair of the Corporation; Chair of Audit and Risk Committee
Tracey James BA, FCA
Tracey joined Activate Learning in July 2013 and has since become Vice Chair of the Corporation Board and Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee. She was motivated to join the group as she had benefited massively from the social mobility gained from completing a BEC National Certificate at Redditch College in the 80’s whilst an apprentice at Hyrovane Compressors Ltd. This enabled her to progress through to University and a successful career in Finance.
Tracey is a qualified Chartered Accountant and was an Audit Partner at Grant Thornton UKLLP where she spent most of her career until June 2018. She was a member of Grant Thornton’s Partner Oversight Board, Audit & Risk Committee and Audit Faculty Board. She specialises in advising fast growth, international businesses across various sectors with a focus on quoted companies. She was previously a member of the ICAEW Audit Regulation Committee and the Audit Committee of South Oxford Housing Association. Tracey spent two years in Industry as Director of Finance for a Medical Supplies company in Canada having previously spent 5 years in Paris. She was appointed as NED to the Board of Places for People Group 1 October 2019.
