William Howarth

Chief Finance Officer

About William

"I'm a qualified accountant with over 20 years senior management experience.

I was Finance Director at Ladybird Books before spending eight years with the BBC in factual TV productions.

I'm responsible for our Finance and Business Systems teams and work closely with the Treasurer to ensure that YHA remains on a sound footing and is able to meet the challenges and opportunities that the future brings.

Like many people I have early memories of YHA and fondly remember some great times in hostels while in Venture Scouts. Outside of work I enjoy music, sport (where I have coached hockey on a voluntary basis for over 25 years) and, of course, travel."
