Ideagen CFO retires

Graeme Spenceley, Chief Financial Officer at Ideagen, the Nottinghamshire-based supplier of integrated risk management software, is to retire from his position at the start of July. Graeme will remain with the Group as Company Secretary – a non-board and part time position.

Emma Hayes has been appointed in his place. Emma is currently Group Finance Director, Capital Delivery and Commercial, at Severn Trent PLC having held the position since 2017. In this role she controlled a P&L and Balance Sheet of approximately £600m and was responsible for driving operational efficiencies through her 100-strong team.

Previously, Emma spent 10 years with Deloitte LLP as a Corporate Finance Director where she led origination and execution of a wide range of M&A transactions. Emma qualified as a Chartered Accountant (ACA) with BDO.

Ben Dorks, Chief Executive of Ideagen, said: “Firstly, the Board would like thank Graeme for his outstanding commitment to Ideagen. His insight, acumen and support over the past 10 years has been invaluable and it has been a great pleasure to work alongside him. We are pleased that Graeme will remain with the business as Company Secretary which will provide for a robust transition.

“The Board is delighted to welcome Emma to the Group who brings with her a deep understanding of both financial structures and processes and M&A. We will benefit hugely from Emma’s experience and ability as Ideagen continues to execute its global growth strategy.”
