PRECISION MACHINING company Renishaw has appointed former Arthur Andersen graduate Carol Chesney as non-executive director
Assuming her role later this month, she will chair the audit committee, taking over from Terry Garthwaite who, along with David Snowden, steps down from the board at the company’s AGM on 18 October. She will also sit on the remuneration committee and nomination committee.
After qualifying as a chartered accountant with Arthur Andersen, she joined safety, health and environmental technology business Halma as group financial controller in 1995, before taking her current role of company secretary in 1998.
Chairman and chief executive Sir David McMurtry said: “With her extensive experience in industry in finance and company secretarial functions, Carol will be a valuable addition to the company’s resources at board level.”
