Leading building services provider J S Wright has bolstered its future as a £50million business with the appointment of a new Finance Manager.

She will assist Finance Director Martin Roberts in monitoring and preparing the accounts for the company, which also has offices in Bristol and London and a 150-strong directly employed workforce.

A London Business School graduate currently working towards her professional qualification as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), Kerry has replaced Sandra Holmes who has retired from J S Wright as Finance Manager after 28 years’ service.

Kerry, who lives at Bearwood in Birmingham, is also a qualified ballet teacher who is aiming to hold local classes in her spare time.

Marcus Aniol, J S Wright Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Kerry to our finance team. With our forward order book from May worth over £50 million, Kerry’s skills and experience will help us to continue to grow as one of the UK’s leading mechanical and electrical services specialists.”
