Erol Kagan
Managing Director

Erol started FinanSys in 1998 out of his deep passion for accounting technology. His accountancy career kicked off after he obtained the AAT qualification and has been working with finance and accounting systems for almost 30 years. 

Erol has lived in a part of London called Shoreditch all his life, from the ’70s now through to the ’20s. He enjoys studying and documenting the history, change, and psychogeography of Shoreditch and the neighbouring city of London. He’s had some of his historic passion for Shoreditch published. 

When Erol started FinanSys, he was the only one working at the company at the time. But in 1999, he employed more people for an international rollout of SunSystems. 

Today, FinanSys is a leading provider in the industry thanks to Erol’s visionary leadership and passion for what we do. His positive energy and welcoming personality are a big part of what makes FinanSys such a fun and productive place to work. 

Erol is passionate about empowering people, growing teams, and experiencing new cultures.
