KashFlow has appointed
former trade and industry secretary Lord Young as its chairman.

The Conservative peer, a qualified solicitor who became a Lord in 1984, has
been appointed to the position with immediate effect.

Lord Young has been drafted in to help develop the company’s mid to long-term
strategic planning, according to KashFlow. ‘I could not have joined at a more
exciting time,’ he said.

Lord Young was made secretary of state for trade and industry in 1987 before
retiring from government in 1989. He also served as president of the Institute
of Directors from 1993 to 2002.
