Bancon appoints new finance director

BANCON Group has named Allan Clow as group finance director.

Mr Clow joins from CHAP Holdings, where he was also group finance director, and replaces David Cassidy who has retired after 12 years with the independent Aberdeenshire housebuilder and construction group.

Mr Clow previously worked in similar roles for Superglass Holdings Plc and Havelock Europa. He holds Chartered Director status from Napier University and was a former member of the board of Perth College within the University of the Highlands and Islands.

John Irvine, chief executive of Bancon Group, said, “As part of our ambitious growth plans for the next five years, we have been strengthening our senior management team. This has included my own appointment last year, the appointment of Gavin Currie and Philip Hogg as Managing Directors of the construction and homes businesses respectively. His experience in successfully supporting sustained growth within a number of sectors will be invaluable to us.”

Bancon Group recently reported results with turnover rising by £5 million to £83.5 million.

Commenting on Mr Cassidy’s retirement, Mr Irvine added, “During his time with Bancon, David has been a great ambassador for the group and we wish him well for the future.”
