Gill Chadwick

Preston-based construction and property company, Eric Wright Group, has appointed Gill Chadwick as its new group finance director.

In her previous role, Chadwick was group financial controller at the firm. Prior to Eric Wright, she was finance director for transport provider H&M Distribution and spent 14 years with professional services giant Deloitte in Manchester.

The finance director role will put her in charge of the finance functions across all Eric Wright divisions. She will also be responsible for the company’s funding and financial strategy.

On her role, Chadwick said: “It is a real privilege to have been appointed to this position.

“Having spent the last 12 months with the company, I’ve experienced first-hand the first-class services it delivers as well as the valuable contribution it makes to the local communities in which it operates and what a difference it makes to the people who live and work there.

“I’m incredibly proud to be a part of that team and I am looking forward to the exciting challenges that lie ahead to shape the future of the business.”

Eric Wright Group managing director Jeremy Hartley added: “Gill has already made a significant contribution to the management of the group’s finances during her time with us, bringing excellent experience and knowledge of the commercial property market to many aspects of our business.

“Her promotion is a key strategic appointment to the main board at a period of significant growth and will ensure our broader business plan strategies receive the best possible financial and commercial input.”
