Meet Laura


Jola Strategic Ltd was founded by Laura Hicks ACA in 2019. Laura has 25 + years’ experience in accountancy practice

and commercial sectors, including financial services, renewable energy, retail, and construction. She gained her

expertise through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. 


Laura prides herself on bringing structure and calm, enabling business leaders to make confident commercial

decisions within their organisations.


Outside of work, Laura loves travel, adventure, and spends most of her time keeping up with her football-mad

son, Josh, and their lively black Labrador, Milo. An advocate for wellbeing, she always finds time to recharge

through her favourite activities, including running, skiing, dancing and yoga.
