Scottish Pacific Group has appointed David Rose as its new chief financial officer and company secretary.

Effective from Tuesday, 14 November, the former head of finance at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia will replace Chris Hedge as chief financial officer.

Scottish Pacific Group CEO Peter Langham welcomed the new addition and said that he was confident that Mr Rose would contribute to the company’s growth and development.

“He [Mr Rose] brings to the company extensive executive leadership skills,” Mr Langham said.

“With his significant experience in disciplined cost management, allied with an understanding of leveraging technology for value, success in new business ventures, global operations and revenue/sales management, we believe he will be a great fit at Scottish Pacific.”

Before his role as head of finance at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Mr Rose had previously held positions as CFO of Retail at Bankwest and CFO of Retail and E-Ventures at NAB, and worked for Pricewaterhouse Coopers throughout the 1990s.

Mr Rose will replace outgoing CFO Chris Hedge, who will be moving to London to head Scottish Pacific’s UK operations.

Mr Langham praised Mr Hedge for his contribution to the company, stating: “Chris has done an amazing job during an exciting time for our business and has set up a well‐structured and motivated finance team for David to inherit.

“Having personally overseen the acquisition of the UK business in January 2017, Chris is keen to take on the leadership role in the UK to provide us with the best opportunity to fully leverage our competitive advantages and develop the business and our people in that region.”
