Andium Homes appoints new Finance Director

8th January 2020

The Andium Homes Board is delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs Lindsay Wood as the new Finance Director for the Company. Lindsay will take up the post and become an Executive Director on the Board from 1st January.

A qualified Chartered Accountant, Lindsay has worked for Andium homes as Head of Finance since its incorporation, and prior to that for the Housing Department since 2011. She has been responsible for the Company’s entire finance function, financial modelling and performance, processing and reporting, ensuring that the Company repays its borrowing and continues to make the annual return to the Government of Jersey. Lindsay has been acting Finance Director since the resignation of the previous postholder in October.

The Board is also pleased to have re-elected Mrs Judy Beaumont for a further three-year term on the Board as a Non-Executive Director.

Sir Mark Boleat, Chair of the Andium Homes Board, said “We carried out an open selection process and the position was duly advertised. There were several well-qualified external applicants, but Lindsay was the strongest candidate and the Board enthusiastically endorsed the conclusion of the Selection Panel that she be appointed. Being able to appoint an internal candidate given strong competition from external candidates is always pleasing for an organisation. The Board has faced a number of changes in recent times, so I am also pleased that Judy Beaumont has been re-elected for a further term, providing additional stability to the Board. Andium is currently recruiting a further two Non-Executive Directors to fill vacancies on the Board and expects to announce appointments at the beginning of February”.
