Harkand, the international subsea inspection, repair, maintenance and light construction group, has appointed Deborah Stevenson as the company’s new chief financial officer.
A former CFO of both private equity-backed and FTSE 250 businesses in engineering and asset rich companies, Stevenson has particular experience of helping rapidly expanding businesses as they prepare for the next stage of growth.
A Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales and an Associate Member of the Chartered Association of Corporate Treasurers, she will be based in Aberdeen with a remit for Harkand’s global operations.
Her initial focus will be on developing the company’s group finance function, including the establishment of a central accounting group in Aberdeen, as well as strengthening cost control and reporting.
Harkand was launched in February 2013 through the merger of Iremis, Integrated Subsea Services (ISS) and Andrews Survey following investment by Oaktree Capital Management. Employing more than 750 people at bases in Aberdeen in the U.K., Dubai in the Middle East and Singapore and Perth in Asia Pacific, the group aims to grow turnover to $1 billion in the next five years.
