About Mei

As the Director of reporting intelligence, Mei advises clients on the ever-evolving regulatory landscape in corporate governance, reporting and sustainability, helping them craft annual reports that tell their story whilst being compliant and striving for best practice.

Mei is a chartered accountant with over 20 years of technical reporting experience, which include over six years as a Project director at the Financial Reporting Council where she oversaw the delivery of several high-profile reporting regulatory projects. In 2021, she was appointed to the FRC’s Advisory Panel – a pool of experts that support the regulator on delivery of their activities – and to the ICAEW’s Financial Reporting Faculty Board.

Mei has extensive experience of working at executive and board level across organisations of all types and sizes. She believes the best work comes from working collaboratively – listen actively, be curious and share knowledge.

“When I am not busy supporting clients or looking after my son and husband, you will find me doing something creative – cooking, baking, all sorts of arts and crafts. I am also quite handy with a drill!”
