Susie Kevern

Qualified Management Accountant and business consultant Susie Kevern founded her business Pound Lane in 2011 to work around her family life.

Having worked in big businesses, including Lloyd Maunder Ltd, now part of the Two Sisters Group, Susie’s vision was to give small businesses access to the sort of information and analysis that the big businesses used to stay ahead of the competition and make better decisions.

She now helps SMEs and start ups through her consulting, supporting mainly small food businesses in Devon succeed in a tough market, helping them to understand their numbers, make plans for the future and focus teams on taking the business there.
