GCI announces appointment of new CFO

Converged ICT Services Provider GCI has appointed Tim Howard as its new Chief Financial Officer. Tim brings a wealth of experience to the Lincoln-based firm including 30 years in finance and over 15 years in leadership roles across multiple hi-tech industries.

With an outstanding reputation as a results-orientated, commercially focused executive, Tim has worked for companies such as Barclays, BAE Systems and Deloitte, and in recent years has garnered extensive experience with several fast-paced, listed blue-chip companies, as well as private equity-backed, SME and start-up organisations.

Vastly experienced in the delivery of programmes that overcome complex business challenges, Tim will join the executive team at GCI to develop future growth strategies and transformation projects. As a ‘big four’ trained CFO, Tim’s professional and disciplined approach will also help drive change management initiatives across the organisation.

Adrian Thirkill, CEO of GCI says: “We’re extremely pleased to have Tim join us at GCI, to help build on the exciting opportunities we have for 2019 and beyond. As his considerable experience shows, Tim has all the attributes to deliver strong leadership and transformational change at this very exciting time for GCI.

“Knowing Tim and the reputation he brings as a great strategic thinker and pragmatic problem solver, his financial background in the hi-tech sector is a perfect fit, at the perfect time for GCI.”

Tim Howard adds: “I am thrilled to be joining such a strong team at this exciting stage of GCI’s journey. The company is in a fantastic position with a great reputation, strong supplier and customer relationships – ideally positioned for growth. I look forward to helping the team further develop a first-class business support platform to facilitate ongoing expansion.”
