Published:  05 May, 2015

Builders’ merchant Collier & Catchpole has appointed Kevin Sturdy as its new finance director.

Mr Sturdy has a wealth of experience having worked at the National Audit Office, Willis Insurance Brokers, and Kent Blaxill where he was finance director for nearly 10 years.

Tim Rowbottom, managing director of Collier & Catchpole, is delighted to welcome Mr Sturdy to the company: “As an independent family-owned business, we particularly recognise the importance of recruiting the right people to secure future growth and development. 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.”

Speaking about his new role, Mr 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.”
