OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION BUSINESS Ascent Resources has recruited Scott Brown as finance director.

Brown started his career as an auditor at Coopers & Lybrand (now PwC) working predominantly in the banking and capital markets division. He later worked at HSBC’s investment banking division as a corporate broker.

He succeeds Simon Cunningham at Ascent Resources, who is relocating to Australia, although he will continue to work under a consultancy arrangement with the business.

Brown joined Ascent Resources as non-executive director in November last year, and worked with Cunningham to ensure a successful handover.
