1st December 2016, 17:00pmWe have recently appointed a new financial director to help steer us through our ambitious growth strategy.
We have appointed Nick Pope to the role, who has returned to the North East after a long stint of living and working abroad. Nick is a fully qualified chartered accountant and after graduating spent 20 years working for global firm, British American Tabacco. More recently he ran his own successful property development company in Dubai before returning to his roots in the North East.
Last year, we announced plans to grow sales of our contract furniture from £25m to £40m by 2020. Nick says this is what attracted him to the role. He commented:
“Godfrey Syrett is a great success story, a true British manufacturer that is very proud of its heritage and North East roots. I am joining the business at a very exciting time and I am looking forward to contributing to their continued growth strategy.”
