Keith Broom has joined bulk logistics specialist Suttons as group finance director.
He was previously chief financial office at Merlin Claims Services Group. Prior to that he spent five years as chief financial officer at parcels carrier City Link.
Widnes-based Suttons has seen sales grow by a third in the past two years to £145m and now has sites in Asia and the Middle East as well as continental Europe.
Managing director Andrew Palmer said: “Over the last 16 years Keith has been in senior finance roles at three private equity backed groups of companies where he gained experience of acquisitions and corporate transactions. These skills will be key to the Group as we look to build on our recent expansion in Asia and the Middle East.”
