Chris Gunning is the Finance Transformation Service lead at Heineken in Amsterdam where he has been living with his family over the last 20 years. Starting off back in Belfast with an Accountancy Degree from Queens, he’s since lived and worked all over the world on every continent — except Antarctica — for Global Tech Companies, Automotive businesses and now one of the biggest beer brands in the world. Chris is also:
  • A self-confessed metal-head
  • An avid-kayaker
  • And the most James Bond-like accountant, I’ve ever met in my life.
In today’s show, we hear stories about growing up in Belfast in the ’70s, working under the supervision of armed guards in Pakistan and being whisked out of an unnamed South American country after he and his team discovered something they shouldn’t have… Check it out. // Webpage for this episode: https://bestofbelfast.org/stories/chris-gunning-heineken
