SCOTTISH company Peter Vardy Limited has appointed a new chief financial officer.

Peter Vardy, chief executive officer, said “We are delighted to welcome Colin to the Peter Vardy Group.
“We have a bold and ambitious 10-year growth strategy and Colin’s wealth of experience in digital and acquisitions will be invaluable to us as we continue to expand.
“As we have seen recently, it is more important than ever to have strong digital capabilities within the motor industry and it’s an area we are excited to continue to develop and grow as a business.
“We wanted to look outwith the motor industry and to some of the leading digital businesses when recruiting for this role, so it was a real coup for the group to recruit Colin. I’m really excited for the future of the business.”
Colin said: “I was attracted by the ambitious strategy but was completely wowed by the ‘sell to give’ culture and the opportunity to make a real difference.”
