The Mick George Group has developed into the leading, independent construction services business in the East Anglia and East Midlands region, recently being listed 178th in the Sunday Times Top Track 250 which ranks Britain’s private mid-market companies with the biggest sales, with annual turnover now exceeding £200m.
Recognising the significant contribution that their employees have made in the Group’s sustained success story to date, they continue in their quest to attract talented individuals that can join the existing team to add further value across the Company.
The Group continues to grow in all areas; employee headcount, geographically, and the variety of service provisions on offer, and while that creates further opportunities for many areas of the business, it has particular implications for the Group’s Finance team as the need for more detailed information and drive for automation increases. Historically Jon Stump has played a key role in everything financial but with the demands of being joint CEO ever growing the time was right to strengthen the team.
Consequently, Alan Hardy has been appointed as Chief Financial Officer for the Mick George Group.
Arriving with more than 20+ years’ board level experience, Alan 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, Alan’s specific focus areas 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.
Alan’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.
