We are very pleased to announce that Maccs Pescatore has joined Montessori St Nicholas as Finance Director, bringing to the role significant commercial experience to match the organisation’s exciting growth plans.


Maccs trained as a Chartered Accountant with Coopers & Lybrand before moving into industry. She went on to spend 13 years with Tate & Lyle Plc and ASR Group in the FMCG sector where she held a variety of senior finance positions in divisions in the UK and Europe.

In recent years, working alongside commercial and operational colleagues, she has combined her passion for business with her affinity for working in changing environments, being instrumental in turning around underperforming businesses, repositioning and moving organisations into new markets.

I am delighted that we have been able to recruit someone of Maccs’ calibre for the crucial role of Finance Director.”

Maccs holds Non-Executive Director positions with Genius Within C.I.C. and London Fire Brigade Enterprises Ltd. She mentors young people wanting to start their own business both through The Prince’s Trust and Hatch Enterprise.
