Emma Henry is an Executive Assistant at Bristol-based Shaw & Co. She provides support to one of the largest corporate finance advisory teams in the South West. Below she provides a summary of her career, her current role and what she does in her spare time.

I joined Shaw & Co in 2019 as maternity cover for the Executive Assistant.

My immediate area of responsibility is to manage complex diary pressures on behalf of Jim Shaw, dealing with sensitive correspondence and matters not requiring his personal attention. I also provide direct support to the operational and marketing teams which includes travel and events management for the Funding Academy.

I also work closely with the Chief Operating Officer by assisting with company accounts, property related matters and communicating with contractors and suppliers.

When I’m not at Shaw & Co, I enjoy exhibitions, cooking, watching live music and theatre. I keep myself active by playing tennis and squash. However, my real passion is for art and I design wedding invitations, cards and illustrations. There is a growing demand for my designs and my ambition is to develop my hobby into a small business.
