Spirax Group confirms start date of new CFO

Cheltenham-based Spirax Group has confirmed the start date of its new chief financial officer.

Further to the announcement made on December 18, 2023, the engineering group has confirmed that Louisa Burdett will commence her new role on July 8.

Nimesh Patel, group chief executive officer, said: "I very much look forward to working with Louisa as we prepare for the opportunities we see ahead.

"I would also like to thank Phil Scott for his excellent stewardship as interim chief financial officer. Phil will complete an orderly handover to Louisa after our half-year results in August before taking up his new role as finance director for our Watson‐Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions Business."

Louisa is a highly experienced CFO, having led finance functions in several large companies including UK‐listed Meggitt and Victrex.

Louisa was most recently chief financial officer of Croda International Plc.

The search for the successor to Nimesh Patel began shortly after the announcement of Nimesh's appointment to group chief executive, a role he took up in January.

Spirax Group is headquartered in Cheltenham and has 40 strategically located manufacturing plants around the world and employs more than 10,000 people, including more than 2,100 direct sales and service engineers.
