Ellie, who was born in Bulgaria, is a Middlesex University Banking and Finance alumni who completed her placement year with Barclays Plc in 1998/9. She qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Deloitte where she worked for 8 years in the Deloitte Financial Services Group (Banking and Securities Audit) as well as holding posts in the Deloitte UK and Global Learning and Development Teams. Audit clients she was involved with included among others: Tullett Prebon Plc (Broking), Lazard (Investment Banking), Mizrahi Tefahot Bank (Banking), Mitsui Bussan Commodities (London Metal Exchange Commodities Broker), Lexicon (Corporate Finance House), ECGD (The UK Government’s Export Credits Guarantee Department), Cazenove (Capital Management), as well as internal audit projects for Visa (Credit Cards). This professional experience informs her teaching of audit and financial accounting at Middlesex University where she returned, this time in a lecturing capacity, in 2008. She is truly "Made in Middlesex" as featured in the university promotional campaign of that name.
She is keen on, and often champions, the use of technology in teaching and promotes the benefits of work experience to support academic study, which she believes leads to both personal growth as well as growth in graduate employment prospects.
Ellie has contributed to a number of textbooks for Pearson and has co-authored “Accounting for Non-Accounting Students”, J Dyson and E Franklin, 9th edition, Pearson available here
