Directorate Change

by: Admin 22/07/2013

Corac Group plc, a group of innovative UK based engineering companies, active in energy and environmental technologies, is pleased to announce changes to its Board of Directors which will take effect today.


The roles of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Chief Operating Officer (COO), previously both held by Mark Crawford, will be separated to reflect the increasing breadth of Group business activities both in the UK and overseas. Going forward, Mark will focus on the role of COO to drive business growth and delivery across the three operating companies.


To support this aim, the Board is delighted to welcome Jon Carter as CFO with immediate effect, taking over responsibility for corporate financial management and supporting investor relations. Jon joins Corac from IPL Group Limited, a privately owned IT services company specialising in intelligent business solutions and technical consulting, where he was CFO. Jon is a Chartered Accountant and has many years of experience as CFO in private equity backed and leveraged companies in the manufacturing & technology sectors. He qualified as an ACA with Coopers & Lybrand.


Phil Cartmell, Chief Executive of Corac Group commented:


"We are pleased to welcome Jon to the Board of Corac Group. As CFO, his accounting and corporate finance experience will add to our talented team and will blend well with Mark's commercial and operational skills as COO. These appointments strengthen the Board and position us well to continue the expansion of the Group."
