V. Group Appoints New CFO
Marine support services provider V.Group has appointed Alison Henriksen to the position of chief financial officer, effective immediately. Henriksen takes over the position from Rod Day, who has served as interim chief financial officer since August 2017.
In addition to her new role as CFO, Henriksen will serve as a member of V.Group’s board of directors, joining the group’s governing body which includes V.Group CEO Ian El-Mokadem and chairman John Pattullo.
Henriksen joins V.Group from Compass Group PLC, the world’s largest catering business, where she most recently was finance director for its UK and Ireland business, having formerly been the finance director for the group’s Australian business. In both countries, Henriksen played a key role in the transformation of those businesses that led to both growth and efficiency improvements.
