Mick George’s chief financial officer (CFO) has left the company after just four months in the role, documents reveal.

Alan Hardy was appointed as CFO on 1 November 2019, but left “by mutual agreement” on 9 March.

Hardy, who previously held roles at Capita and BOC, was brought in by the bulk excavation and earth moving company to develop and deliver a long-term financial plan.

A spokesman for the company said Karen Farrell remained the group’s financial director, “a position she has held for the last two years and which followed seven years serving as the group’s head of finance.

“Karen also formerly joined the group’s board in 2019,” the spokesman added.

Confirmation of Hardy’s resignation came just a few weeks after Mick George’s latest financial results were published, showing that in the 15 months ending 30 September 2019 the company reported revenues of £255.2m and a pre-tax profit of £13.9m.
