Interim finance chief called in at Digital Barriers

Paul Bergin to step in as Digital Barriers finance head, with the departure of Nik Holgate immminent

AN INTERIM head of finance has been appointed at AIM-listed Digital Barriers.

Group finance director Nik Holgate is to leave the surveillance technologies business at the end of August. An interim head of finance, Paul Bergin, has been recruited for the next few weeks to assist with the transition. Bergin most recently served with retailers’ own brand producer McBride.

Recruiters Heidrick & Struggles have been engaged to find a long-term replacement for Holgate. PwC-trained Holgate has held a number of senior finance roles, including Fjord, i-level and Posterscope.

Dr Tom Black, executive chairman of Digital Barriers, said: “On behalf of the board, I want to thank Nik for his contribution to Digital Barriers’ development over the past two years and wish him well for the future. We are now gaining increased sales momentum, particularly in international markets, and we are also placing increased emphasis on our investor relations efforts. We will therefore be appointing a new group finance director with particular experience in each of these areas.”
