Buckingham Group is delighted to confirm the appointment of Andrew Kerr as Group Finance Director with effect from Monday 16th July 2018. Andrew will be a Company Director and an integral member of the Board.
Andrew (pictured adjacent), is a long standing Chartered Accountant, and has undertaken similar Senior Executive roles in the course of a 30-year career. This has included a seven-year spell as Group Finance Director at McNicholas Construction, and several years as the Finance Director at Interior PLC, then part of the ISG group.
As well as supporting existing Directors in dealing with financial matters and statutory duties, Andrew’s experience will bring a fresh approach and contribute to improving the company’s performance, enhancing the business and developing our teams for the future.
In the past week, the company reported financial results for 2017 that showed an annual turnover of £423 million, a record profit, and confirmed that sales are on track to exceed £500 million in 2018. The results highlight that Buckingham Group’s finances are in very good shape as a result of the strong performance of the business over the past four years and the Board’s policy of retaining profits.
Group MD Mike Kempley commented ‘’We are delighted to be welcoming Andrew into the Business. Over the past year the Board of Directors has reflected on the scale of the Company’s operations and our plans for continued growth. As a result of this review, we took the decision to recruit a dedicated and experienced Group Finance Director to both oversee the Company’s finances and strengthen the Board through making a wider contribution to overall strategy and management.’’
