FORMER BAKER TILLY partner Mark Westcombe Elliott has been appointed interim chief financial officer at CCTV supplier 21st Century.

Elliott suceeds Wilson Jennings, who took over as group CEO in September last year after Nick Grimond resigned from the post for personal reasons.

Currently a non-executive director of the company, Elliott has spent the last 12 years as managing director of private equity group ICE Partners.

Elliott's responsibilities as chairman of the company's audit committee will be assumed by David Voss who is currently chairman of 21st Century's remuneration committee.

Jan Holmstrom, chairman, said: "We are pleased Mark has assumed this additional role on the board whilst we search for a suitable candidate from the industry. Both David and Mark's continued support, which utilises their considerable experience, provide a stable platform for the group to preserve its significant growth rates achieved to date.

"We start the year confident we can drive the order book and profits further in the UK and overseas."
