Alan Hardy appointed as chief financial officer to deliver long-term financial plan for the Group
WITH an annual turnover that now exceeds £200 million, Mick George Group have announced the appointment of Alan Hardy as their new chief financial officer.
Historically, Jon Stump played a key role in the Group’s financial matters, but with ever-growing demands on the joint chief executive officer, plus the finance team’s need for more detailed information as the drive for automation increases, the company felt the time was right to strengthen the team.
Arriving with more than 20 years’ board-level experience, Mr Hardy (pictured) is tasked with developing and delivering a long-term financial plan for the Group, while concurrently improving financial processes and systems.
As a member of the board, his specific focus areas will include financial planning and analysis, improving profitability and cash flow, streamlining processes and systems, leadership and development of the finance function, and financial support and advice to the board.
Mr Hardy’s previous experience with BOC, Capita, UK Government and Transport Systems Catapult has covered major capital investment and business change programmes, including, multiple ERP system implementations and transformation programmes.
