Today is International Women’s Day. And through our Meet the Team series we want to highlight Head of Accounts, Mandy Gibbons. For over 6 years Mandy’s been the steadying hand that’s provided confidence and clarity to the business, making sure financial stability is a given. Furlough has impacted on Mandy’s presence over the last 12 months but she’s an integral part of the KNP family.

But to find out what goes on in the head of our Head of Accounts, and what she likes outside of KNP, take a look at the following Q&A. It’s a fun read.

Meet the team question time!

Who would you want to play you in a film of your life: GOLDIE HAWN

What special (by special we mean useless) talent do you have: NONE OF MY TALENTS ARE USELESS! Not going to argue.

What common quote or saying most annoys you: EYES TOO BIG FOR YOUR BELLY

Favourite TV programme: EMMERDALE … sad, I know. Noooo. It’s not sad Mandy. It’s not, Honest.

Favourite food: INDIAN or MEXICAN… I’m greedy. Can I have two favourites? Go on then, I think you’ve got eyes too big….

Favourite musician / artist: COLDPLAY. And you apologised about Emmerdale!

Favourite song: RUPERT BEAR THEME TUNE. Never, never saw that one coming.


Worst film you’ve ever seen: NOT REALLY A FILM BUFF. I’M MORE ABOUT BOOKS

Name 3 people (dead or alive) you’d have as dinner guests: THE QUEEN, CATHERINE TATE, MY NAN & GRANDAD (ONE EXTRA BUT THEY’D BE A GOOD COMBINATION). Not one for following the rules with these questions are you.

Who would you not want to be stuck in a lift with: ME! ONE OF MY FEARS? BEING STUCK IN CONFINED SPACES. The stairs are always good exercise.

When you were young, what did you want to be: I WANTED TO WORK WITH HORSES.

Favourite gadget: HAIR STRAIGHTENERS

Worst habit: SCATTINESS. Hang on, what did you say, can’t remember where I put my pen.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be: ANYWHERE HOT & SUNNY AS LONG AS IT’S NOT TOO FAR AWAY FROM MY FAMILY. 

What special power would you like to have: TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM SUFFERING ILLNESS. Not just one illness, all of them. Big, big power.

And that was Meet the Team: Mandy Gibbons. Don’t know about you, but I feel a lot better.

The KNP team.
