Daisy announces chief financial officer to board
The Daisy Group has announced a new appointment to its board on the back of its rapid expansion, which saw it acquire Redstone last month.
Anthony Riley will join the board as chief financial officer. He was previously at Daisy Group subsidiary, Daisy Communications where he had held the CFO rold for over a year.
Riley, who is a qualified accountant, will be replacing Stewart Porter, who has decided to step down to pursue ‘other interests’.
Mathew Riley, Daisy chief executive, said: ‘The board and I would like to thank Stewart for his significant contribution to the company’s development and growth since 2000. We wish him well for the future.
‘We are delighted to welcome Anthony to the Board and we are confident that his experience at Daisy Communications Limited and elsewhere will prove valuable to the next stage of our growth.
‘During his time as CFO at Daisy Communications, Anthony oversaw the acquisition and integration of three businesses; giving him good experience which will be crucial for his role in the company.’
