Interserve has announced that its new chief financial officer will be Mark Whiteling.
Whiteling joins from business travel firm Hogg Robinson Group, where he is a senior independent director. He will start the job on October 1.
Last week Interserve issued a profit warning, saying that the costs of exiting the energy from waste business will be significantly more than anticipated and its performance for the year will be “significantly” below the board’s previous expectations.
In a statement it said that trading in the UK in July and August was “disappointing”. It said: “As a result of this, the board now believes that the outturn for the year will be significantly below its previous expectations.”
Interserve chairman Glyn Barker said today: “Following the appointment of Debbie White as chief executive, Mark’s appointment is the next step in strengthening our top team to lead the transformation of Interserve. I am delighted to welcome Mark. His personal style and breadth of his experience will bring great value to the Group.”
