Fast Growth Consulting


Alysha Randall

CPA & Director

I work with multiple SME companies as their Interim FD/CFO. I really enjoy this as I'm able to learn more about what's happening in the marketplace and offer cutting edge strategies. I also love working with new Finance Seniors and help them on their journey to becoming skilled Finance Directors.

I'm the founder of Fast Growth Consulting Ltd and I thrive on helping small businesses and mentoring, coaching and training finance teams. I love showing finance teams that they can be more than just keeping the lights on for the business and really add value.

The finance team can be really commercially focused and this is usually the case for large corporations, but not necessarily for smaller businesses. This is why an Interim FD/CFO can be such an asset - as you get that strategic thinking without hiring a full-time member of the leadership team.

I have enjoyed working with clients so far in the UK, Asia and the US.

Outside work, I love spending time with my family, riding bikes & playing tennis with the children, any water sports and cooking up a storm. I also wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for copious amounts of coffee!

I worked with Alysha while at a tech startup company. Alysha is a highly experienced finance professional; she was able to provide me with excellent guidance as to how to set up and develop a finance function at an early stage company.

She also provided me with useful worked and practical examples that were immediately applicable in the business. Further, Alysha is a pleasure to work with and is highly recommended to anyone who would like to upskill in their Finance Director role.
