UK: Breedon Group has appointed James Brotherton as its chief financial officer (CFO) designate with effect from 1 January 2021. He was previously the CFO of Tyman between 2010 and 2019, prior to which he was Director of Corporate Development for five years. Prior to Tyman, Brotherton worked in investment banking roles at Citi and HSBC, after qualifying as a chartered accountant at Ernst and Young. He is currently a director of the Quoted Companies Alliance (QCA) and represents the QCA on the Takeover Panel.
As announced previously, Rob Wood, Breedon Groups' current Group Finance Director, will succeed Pat Ward as chief executive officer (CEO) upon Ward’s retirement during 2021. It is anticipated that Brotherton will be appointed to the board as CFO at that point to ensure an orderly transition.
