Finance director for Speedy Hire
By Helen Wright09 January 2015
UK-based rental company Speedy Hire has appointed Russell Down as its new group finance director, succeeding Lynn Krige who stepped down last summer.
Ms Krige left the company following a tumultuous year for the group in the Middle East, where accounting regularities lead to a full-year loss for 2013.
Speedy said Mr Down, who has been group finance director at design and engineering consultancy Hyder Consulting since 2008, would join its board from 6 April, 2015.
Speedy CEO Mark Rogerson said, “We are delighted that Russell is joining us. He has a strong financial and commercial track record and in depth experience of working in a PLC environment. Speedy will benefit from his highly analytical and focussed approach and I very much look forward to working with him."
