New finance director appointed

We've appointed Sandra Kelly to replace Philip Ridal as finance director with effect from the end of June when Philip retires.

Sandra spent eight years as finance director at NHBC (National House-Building Council), the UK’s leading independent standard-setting body and provider of warranty and insurance for new homes in the UK.  She previously held senior finance positions in the commercial sector, most notably for BMW UK.

Richard Parry, chief executive of the Canal & River Trust, comments: “I am delighted to welcome Sandra to the Trust.  She’ll join us from the beginning of April to enable a three month handover with Philip before taking over as finance director at the end of June.”
