Fowler is a chartered accountant who has worked in the automotive logistics sector for major motor manufacturers.
Jerry Davison, SouthWestfd managing director, said: “We conduct rigorous recruitment processes to ensure that we not only take on the most highly qualified and experienced finance directors, but they must have the right qualities in order to work closely with our clients and maintain the SouthWestfd brand.”
