DEESIDE Timberframe is bolstering its senior management team with the appointment of a new finance director and a realignment of roles to support its growth plans.

The Stonehaven-based business, which designs, manufactures and installs timber systems, has appointed Kirsten Bell as finance director.

With 16 years’ experience in finance in the construction industry, Kirsten held financial controller roles with Chap Group Ltd and Mansell before joining Bancon Construction.

Her appointment is part of a realignment of the senior management team aimed at delivering the firm’s growth plans.

Derek Wann, former commercial director, takes on the new role of UK business development director while former operations director, Stewart Ferguson, has been appointed contracts director.

Meanwhile, John Cain has been appointed to the new role of national sales manager as Deeside Timberframe looks to push into the English market.

David Crawford, managing director of Deeside Timberframe, said: “We’re thrilled that Kirsten is taking up the role of finance director after transforming our systems and reporting.

“Our restructured senior management team is now fully aligned with our business plan which seeks to deliver significant growth.”

Aberdeenshire-headquartered Deeside Timberframe, part of the Bancon Group, has been providing timber frames for over 40 years.

The company works with housebuilders, housing associations, construction firms and self-build customers to design, manufacture, and install timber systems.
