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

The Stonehaven-based business, a market-leader in the design, manufacture and installation of timber systems, has appointed Kirsten Bell as finance director.

Previously finance director of sister company, Bancon Construction, for almost six years, Kirsten has held the role of ERP (enterprise, resource planning) project manager with Deeside Timberframe for 18 months during which she delivered significant improvements in systems and reporting.

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 has strengthened the senior management team which has been realigned to deliver the growth plans.

As part of this, Derek Wann, former commercial director, takes on the new role of UK business development director and 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: “Our restructured senior management team is now fully aligned with our business plan which seeks to deliver significant growth over the next three to five years by capitalising on our strong market position and the increasing demand for modern, sustainable construction.

“We’re thrilled that Kirsten is taking up the role of finance director after transforming our systems and reporting. She will be ably supported by Derek, Stewart and John in their new roles which are more commercially focused, enabling us to better pursue new business opportunities while maintaining and reinforcing our relationships with existing customers.”

Aberdeenshire-headquartered Deeside Timberframe, part of the Bancon Group, has been providing precision-engineered timber frames for over 40 years. As one of the UK’s leading designers, manufacturers and installers of timber systems, the company works with housebuilders, housing associations, construction firms and self-build customers to meet the growing demand for sustainable and modern methods of construction.
