We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Martin Audcent, our Group CFO, was awarded Finance Director of the year 2019 (£8m to £18m category) in the Finance Director of the Year Awards. Martin faced stiff competition but was however recognised for the pivotal parts he played in both the Certus and HNS acquisitions earlier this year, as well as for supporting our CEO, Adam Binks in the equity fund raise back in February for the Certus acquisition. All of which was completed in record breaking time and to the standards we expect.
Since joining SysGroup in the summer of 2018, we have all had the pleasure of working alongside Martin and he has become an extremely valuable, and respected member of the team and has made a positive impact on the business, whilst being instrumental in helping move SysGroup forward on our journey.
We caught up with Martin to see what he had to say:
"I’m delighted to have won this award in what’s been a fantastic year for SysGroup. It’s tribute to all the team that we’ve achieved so much and I'm excited for what 2020 holds for SysGroup, I'm positive it's going to be another year of success!"
The prestigious awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding work done by the region's tireless financial directors, rewarding the key boardroom roles they perform.
FD Awards creator Simon Massey, regards the awards as a well overdue event, saying, "I'm very passionate about our local business regions and having had the pleasure of working with so many talented FD’s within the local area I really appreciate and understand what remarkable jobs they do year in year out. As a result I felt it was about time they received some well earned recognition".
We’re all so proud of Martin and will certainly be celebrating with him!
