Burke to lead CEO review at Davenham

Group FD of Davenham appointed group managing director to lead review to decide whether the business should have a CEO or not

Group FD of Davenham, the finance group, Paul Burke is making a bit of an
unconventional career move. He has been appointed as group managing director
replacing outgoing CEO David Coates. As part of a wider strategic review at the
asset-based finance company, it will be decided whether the business will have a
CEO – or not. He was previously a director at Tenon and FD of Abbey National
Business.

Northern Rock secured Jim McConville to take on the mammoth task of CFO. He
has more than 20 years experience in the banking industry and has been FD at
both Scottish Widows and Lloyds Banking Group in the insurance and investments
division. He takes over from Geoff Dunn, who took on the role on an interim
basis after Ann Godbehere – who spent just a year in the role – stepped down in
February 2009.

Top 60 firm Bishop Fleming has promoted its insolvency practitioner to CEO.
Jerry O’Sullivan succeeds Brian Payne who retires this year. O’Sullivan joined
the firm in 1984 as senior audit manager and head of business recovery. Prior to
Bishop Fleming he was at Royce Peeling Green as audit and insolvency manager. He
qualified at Robson Rhodes.

Former Deloitte senior manager Elizabeth Arnold takes the reins as financial
controller at Serviced Office, the rental office space business. She previously
concentrated on real estate, tourism and hospitality at Deloitte. Arnold spent
more than nine years at the firm and also worked as an audit manager during her
time there.

Zenith Provecta, the fleet management business, has recruited Robert Butler
to financial controller. He was deputy FD at Shepherd Construction and head of
financial accounting at Virgin Media.

Kate Aitchison takes up the role of tax manager at Yorkshire-based practice
Clough Taxation Solutions. She was previously at KPMG and will be responsible
for tax advice to high net worth individuals and trusts.
