At the inception of the company in 1988, Jill took responsibility for all financial matters, and was also Company Secretary. Like many wives of Merchant Navy Officers her background was in nursing, but when Dieter founded Viking she was thrown into the breach and asked to keep the books. Over the years she honed her skills in accounting and ensured that the company operated efficiently and successfully in a competitive market place. Nowadays Jill is the Director responsible for overseeing the good governance of the Group by the Board and in this role she harnesses the energies of the leadership team and keeps them in line, promoting good practice across all departments.
