CFO appointed at Kent's Carousel
Carousel has appointed Nigel Ward as its new CFO.
The Kent-headquartered European service-logistics provider is backed by Livingbridge.
Ward joins the organisation from business services provider Kindertons and takes on the responsibility of Carousel’s financial reporting and strategic investment relationships across Europe.
As a member of the firm's Executive Board, he will also take a lead role in expanding the company, and its European proposition, through both organic growth and acquisition opportunities.
Carousel CEO Graham Martin said: “Nigel is a highly-experienced CFO whose credentials are ideally suited to Carousel.
“His strong track-record in fast-growth, PE-backed organisations, combined with his tenacity for adding real value, makes him the perfect candidate.
“We’re at a critical stage in our ambitious growth strategy; a strategy driven by an ever-increasing demand for service-driven logistics.
“It’s more important than ever that Carousel continues to extend its network and enhance its capabilities across Europe, in order to meet this growing demand.
“I look forward to working with Nigel to achieve our strategic goals during the coming years.”
Ward said: “In joining Carousel I’m stepping into a company with huge market potential which, as CFO, is immensely exciting.
“The demand for service-logistics is at an all-time high so, my aim is simple – to progress the business vision and build upon its solid foundations to achieve our goal of becoming the number one service-logistics provider in Europe.
“It's great to be working alongside such fantastic team and I know that, as well as hard work, they’ll be some fun along the way too. I can’t wait to get started.”
