Gita Naik - Head of Finance


Gita is the newest member of our Senior Management Team, joining in February 2020 as Head of Finance. Her role is integral to the delivery of strategy and continued successful growth of TCHC. She will be implementing robust financial controls, budgeting, forecasting and analysis as well as encouraging commercial activity and managing risk.

Gita started her career as a Research Scientist but due to her love of numbers she decided to pursue a career in Finance. She started work for a national commercial business and has since gained over fifteen years’ experience. She has been involved as a finance manager and other senior finance roles for organisations across a number of sectors including social enterprise.

This has given Gita strong financial acumen with a commercial mindset and influencing skills to add value to TCHC’s Senior Management Team.

In her spare time, she enjoys the cinema, travelling and is an active member of the local community.
