UK accountant takes the helm at Scala
Netherlands-based software house Scala NV has appointed UK chartered accountant Norman Lindsay as its chief financial officer, succeeding Michael Longman.
A fellow of the English ICA and Institute of Directors, Lindsay, 53, has been a finance director for 25 years, including 12 years as a CFO.
His career includes senior positions with organizations such as Sketchley Group Plc, PMSI, Amersham International, Walter Kidde Plc and Alberto Culver Company. He first joined Scala as interim CFO in September 1999, working alongside Michael Longman, as part of the transition process leading to his appointment as CFO.
Lindsay will also serve as a member of the company’s management board, subject to approval at a shareholders’ meeting in May 2000. Longman will leave Scala in April to pursue other business interests.
