Unit4, today announces the appointment of Gordon Stuart as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Gordon joins Unit4 in April, with responsibility for finance, IT, and legal affairs as well as business operations. He joins from TMF Group, a world leading provider of accounting, tax, HR and payroll services to businesses in over 80 countries around the world. Gordon held the role as TMF’s group CFO since early 2012, during which time he was instrumental in driving over 50% organic and acquisitive growth in the business, overseeing 18 acquisitions, culminating in CVC Capital Partners’ agreement to acquire TMF, announced in October last year.
Prior to TMF, Gordon was CFO and head of offshore operations at Alexander Mann Solutions, a global leader in recruitment process outsourcing. He spent the early years of his professional career as a management consultant at McKinsey & Co, and more recently also held non-executive roles with Sepura plc and Intec Telecom Systems plc.
‘I am very much looking forward to joining Unit4, a business that I have known for some time as a client and strategic partner. It is an exciting time for the business as it re-positions itself to help clients deliver improved results and to expand its offering in key strategic services verticals’, commented Gordon Stuart.
“With extensive experience working with large international service organizations, Gordon will help drive our operational and financial success, helped by an understanding of the industry and the pressures faced by our customers,” says Stephan Sieber, CEO of Unit4.
Gordon succeeds Yann Leca, who joined Unit4 as CFO in 2016. He will step aside from his operational role in April, but will continue to serve Unit4 as a senior advisor to the CEO and the board.
