Façade, window and door designer, manufacturer and installer, CMS Group, has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Andrew Charters as Group Finance Director.
Andrew (pictured) joins Maven Capital Partners-backed CMS from the Scottish Football Association (SFA) where he has held the post of Director of Finance and IT for the last three years, a role that involved leading on the organisation’s acquisition of Hampden Park last year.
Prior to the SFA, Andrew’s distinguished financial career spans over a quarter of a century, across a variety of sectors including manufacturing, higher education and business services.
David Ritchie, CEO of CMS Group, commented: “We are really pleased to welcome Andrew Charters as our new Group Finance Director and recognise the valuable experience he brings at an important time for our business.
“With his excellent track record across a variety of organisations, Andrew will be a great asset to CMS as we work hard to help our customers get their projects back on track post-lockdown, and drive forward with new innovations to deliver ever more sustainable buildings and homes across the UK.”
Andrew Charters, New Group Finance Director, said: “I am delighted to be taking up my new role at CMS. The success of the business from a standing start in 2006 to what it is today is remarkable, and I am looking forward to working with the team to navigate the short term challenges brought by COVID-19 to deliver on our long term, sustainable growth plans.”
