Sonia Chandaria

Financial Controller

I joined byrne·dean in January 2020 with 10 years of accounting experience spanning both professional services (Deloitte) and finance roles that traversed a variety of industries including real estate, hospitality/healthcare and technology.

As our Financial Controller, I have three main areas of responsibility:

Operational finance: I ensure that we continue to maintain robust financial controls/processes that continue to evolve with our growing business;

Financial reporting: I oversee our statutory compliance and management reporting obligations; and

Financial planning & analysis: I build financial models to support the management team with, often complex but important decision making.

I moved to byrne·dean as I believe in the business’ vision and values and it’s so wonderful to work with like-minded people. I enjoy the positive attitude with which the team apply themselves and I’m keen to play my part in helping byrne·dean create kinder, fairer, more productive workplaces.

I just love to dance. When I’m not at byrne·dean I pursue performance, choreography and education at Sona Lisa Dance Company, which I founded in 2018.
