We are delighted to announce that Lynn Krige will be joining as the new Chief Financial Officer for City & County Healthcare Group from Monday 17th May. Lynn will be replacing Nick Goodban in this capacity and will report to our CEO, James Thorburn.
Nick Goodban, our previous Finance Director, is moving to a new role as Director for Mergers & Acquisitions. Nick has led our finance function as well as our mergers and acquisitions activity for many years. Given the importance of acquisitions and commercial deal-making to our strategic plans, we have made the decision to split the role – allowing both Lynn and Nick to dedicate their focus on each area.
Lynn is a seasoned CFO and Board Member in both privately-owned and listed businesses, and joins us from Well Pharmacy – where she was CFO in an £800m turnover business with over 750 pharmacies nationwide. Prior to this, Lynn was CFO at the inspection services business British Engineering Services and at the equipment supply business Speedy Hire PLC. Lynn was also for many years at John Laing PLC, where latterly she was Group Finance Director and a Board Member.
Lynn grew up in South Africa but has spent the last 20 years in the UK and now lives with her family in West Lancashire. We are delighted that Lynn is joining the team and ask for everyone’s help and support as she goes through her induction and gets to know the business.
