Clive McGreal is the new Financial Controller at the Treasury 28 September 2006

Clive McGreal has been appointed to the post of Financial Controller at the Treasury and takes up his position on October 9th.

Having begun his career in local government in South Wales Clive and later worked in the NHS throughout the Principality prior to joining the Ministry of Defence where he was based overseas in Oman during the conflict of the 1st Gulf War, Clive moved to the Island and joined the Treasury in 1992, firstly as the Forensic Accountant to the then newly constituted Fraud Squad which has since evolved into the Financial Crimes Unit. He later became the Senior Accountant within the Budget and Financial Management Section providing policy and financial advice to a number of Government Departments. In 1999 he became the Chief Internal Auditor and has occupied that post for some 7 years, raising the Island’s profile in that profession by representing Treasury at the Heads of Internal Audit Forum with UK Government and becoming an elected Member of the Regional CIPFA Audit Group.

He has been closely involved with a number of strategic financial initiatives during his tenure with Treasury, such as the delegation of financial management to schools, structuring the commercial arrangements for the energy from waste plant and a whole range of diverse issues in which he has made a valuable contribution.

On his appointment Clive said:-

“Naturally I am delighted to be given this opportunity to lead the new Corporate Strategy Division and am under no illusion as to the immense challenges and complex projects that lay ahead. I’m just pleased to be joining such a professional and experienced team at the heart of the Treasury who are committed to their pivotal role in the delivery of the Budget and financial management strategy so essential to the continued economic prosperity of the Island”.

Away from the office Clive is a keen squash player and rugby enthusiast who together with his wife Bernice (Finance Manager at the DHSS) travelled to Australia in 2003 for the last Rugby World Cup and also New Zealand last year following the British Lions Tour. They have 2 sons Michael (a local taxi driver) and Mark presently studying at Glamorgan University when he’s not playing rugby for Caerphilly RFC.
