Have your say

SIG, the Sheffield-based leading European supplier of insulation and specialist construction products, has appointed Doug Robertson as its new finance director.

Mr Robertson will join the company at the start of November and will take over from current finance director, Gareth Davies, at the end of that month.

Prior to joining SIG, the 57- year-old was finance director of Umeco, the publicly quoted international supplier of advanced composite materials to the aerospace, defence wind energy, recreation and automotive industries, from 2007 to May of this year.

Before that he was finance director of Seton House Group, which designs and manufacturers equipment such as overhead bins, seating and lavatories for aircraft, and managing director of Tesa Group, the hotel security division of Chubb.

Gareth Davies announced earlier this year that he was to leave SIG after 18 years with the firm, including nine as finance director.

SIG chief executive Chris Davies said: “I am delighted to welcome Doug to SIG. He brings with him extensive strategic, operational and financial experience which will prove invaluable to the Group through its next stage of development.

“I would like to thank Gareth for his significant contribution to SIG over a number of years. He leaves the Group in a strong financial position and we wish him every success for the future.”
