British cloud firm UKFast has appointed Catherine Greening to the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
The move comes as part of the expansion plans linked to the recent investment from Inflexion Private Equity announced by the hosting provider last month.
Greening, who joined UKFast five years ago as M&A director, played an important role in the recent deal with Inflexion alongside GCA Altium which saw UKFast valued at £405m.
Since joining in 2013, Greening has been closely involved in the development of UKFast and its related companies, including the acquisitions of penetration testing specialist, Pentest Ltd, and of public sector cloud and cybersecurity business Secure Information Assurance (S-IA), now UKFast Public Sector.
Catherine comments: “As M&A director, I was more focussed on one-off projects designed to add value, such as the acquisition of S-IA. The move to CFO sees me far more involved in the day-to-day operations of UKFast, working more closely with the other directors to drive business performance.”
UKFast’s CEO is Lawrence Jones MBE.
