Due to its growth in the UK, at the beginning of 2020, extraction manufacturer Falmec UK has appointed Stuart Ridge as its first chief financial officer.
Ridge has joined the company following 12 years at Blanco UK, where he held a similar role as financial officer.
During his time at Blanco, Ridge worked with three managing directors including Ron Blount who is now sales development manager at Falmec UK.
Ron Blount commenting on the appointment: “At the rate at which Falmec is growing in the UK, we now need proper fiduciary control, and this is what Stuart brings to the business.
“He is well respected in the kitchen world and a real asset to have on our team.”
A Chartered Accountant by profession, Stuart Ridge has spent most of his career in industry, first in motoring and then in logistics and manufacturing.
Stuart Ridge commented on his new role: “This is a pivotal moment to join Falmec UK as the company is developing at such an impressive rate.
“My objective is to help Falmec UK to continue to grow profitably and to ensure that the growth is sustained.”
His appointment follows on from that of Matt Verrey who joined the company as regional sales manager.
