About Fred Shone
Frederic Shone is a fourth-generation Adventist whose family were involved in the growth of new churches and church schools as well as the Medical and Missionary work.
After graduating from Durham University, he taught Maths and Science in the West end of Newcastle before retraining as a Chartered Accountant in Hexham, Northumberland.
He spent a year seconded to the Norwegian sector of North Sea Oil, and four years as an Audit Manager in Barbados before returning to work in the commercial sector in the UK and Europe, mainly in TV, Film and Publishing. In recent years, he has specialised in the technical aspects of the International Financial Reporting Standards before being appointed Treasurer in November 2016.
Fred has served as Treasurer in churches in Newcastle, Barbados and Milton Keynes, and has experienced the difficulties and pressures that our Treasurers face. As a result, he is keen to implement the use of modern software across the Conference. He is also committed to developing additional Channels of Giving, such as Giving by Text and a Tithes & Offerings App so that members will find it easier to give what they want to give, rather than what they happen to have in their pockets.
