East Anglian builders merchant Collier & Catchpole has appointed Kevin Sturdy as its new finance director.
Sturdy comes to the role with a wealth of experience, not only in finance with previous career positions with the National Audit Office and Willis Insurance Brokers, but also with significant sector knowledge having been finance director with Kent Blaxill for just under 10 years.
Tim Rowbottom, managing director, is delighted to welcome Sturdy to the independent builders merchant.
“As an independent family-owned business, we particularly recognise the importance of recruiting the right people to secure future growth and development,” said Rowbottom.
“Finance is a pivotal role, underpinning performance at all levels. We are delighted to have Kevin join us as part of our close-knit team and know that his experience, outlook and talents will be very much appreciated.”
Kevin Sturdy said: “I was fortunate enough to start with Collier & Catchpole in an interim role and so had the opportunity to get to know the role and the business before taking on the permanent position as Finance Director.
“I respect how Collier & Catchpole values its customer base and aims to differentiate itself from the competition by its service levels. I look forward to being part of the team as the business goes through this period of growth and diversification.”
