TJ, a leading UK provider of aggregates, bulk haulage and waste management services, has appointed Barry Curtis as the firm's first-ever head of finance
TJ, the award winning UK provider of bulk haulage, aggregates and waste management services, has appointed Barry Curtis as the company’s head of finance.
Curtis joins Hampshire, England-based TJ, from AIM-listed Deltex Medical where he held the position of financial controller. Post university, Curtis spent eight years training at BDO LLP where he gained his full chartered accountancy qualifications.
The role of head of finance is new to TJ, the businesses having previously used external accountants for all management reporting functions. Alongside his day-to-day responsibilities, Curtis has been specifically tasked with further enhancing the quality and flexibility of the company’s management information. This will enable the team to make quicker, better decisions at any given moment.
Welcoming Curtis to his management team, TJ’s managing director, John Gosling, said: “We are thrilled to have Barry join TJ, bringing with him such a diversity of experience in other sectors. Having seen such significant growth in the last few years, the time was right for TJ to bring all the finance functions in-house and we feel supremely confident that under Barry’s leadership, the financial management of the company will be in safe and skilful hands.”
Commenting on his new role, Curtis adds: “Having been introduced to the business by a former colleague, I was immediately struck by the strong brand and ethos of TJ. In a sector that is relatively new to me, I was particularly impressed by the emphasis TJ puts on customer service and am looking forward to using my experience in other industries to deliver financial agility in this burgeoning business.”
