As the Carey Group enters its sixth decade, I am delighted to announce that as part of our ongoing strategy to strengthen our Board of Directors, we have made a number of key appointments to ensure the continued success of the Group for the years ahead.
Following Jason Carey and Tommy Carey becoming Joint Interim Group Chief Executive Officers in July 2019, Jason has been formally appointed as Group Chief Executive Officer and Tommy as Group Chief Operating Officer, complementing their strengths and close working relationship spanning over 20 years. Jason’s inspiring commitment to creating a culture of engagement, empowerment and collaboration for our people to excel, combined with Tommy’s passion for and expertise in leading and delivering operational excellence, means their appointments will drive and embed the Carey Way philosophy across all areas of the Group.
At the beginning of the year we appointed Steve Maslin as a Non-Executive Director and chair of the Group’s Risk and Audit Committee. Steve brings over 30 years of experience in finance, auditing, policy, risk and regulations within the public, private and charity sectors. We look forward to working with him and benefiting from his extensive knowledge and expertise.
Additionally, Warren Underwood has been appointed Group Chief Financial Officer replacing Alan McCarthy who has stepped down after seven years with the Group. We thank Alan for his dedication during a period of significant growth for the Group and welcome Warren who brings strong financial and commercial leadership with over 25 years of experience within the construction industry.
The strength of these leadership appointments will support our focus on developing our core services and protect and enhance the vision and values the business was founded on over 50 years ago.
