One year left for Ashtead FD

ASHTEAD GROUP finance director Ian Robson is to step down in July next year.

He has held the post since June 2000 and will pass the reins to Suzanne Wood, chief financial officer of subsidiary Sunbelt Rentals.

The equipment rental company said Robson “has worked tirelessly … and the financial strength of the company and its sound debt structure … are tributes to those efforts”.

It said that Wood’s profound knowledge of Sunbelt’s business “will be invaluable in enabling a seamless transition in July 2012”.
