Rail maintenance group Jarvis has promoted its finance director Graham Denton to group finance director and executive director from 1 November.
Mr Denton, currently finance director of Jarvis Rail, will replace John O’Kane who will leave Jarvis at the end of this month after three years at the company for a similar position at engineering services company Redhall Group.
Mr Denton originally joined Jarvis in 2006. Before his current role he was finance director of Jarvis Accommodation Services, and before that he worked in senior positions at a number of companies, including BAA, Vivendi Energy Services UK, and Grand Metropolitan (now Diageo).
Last month Jarvis, which is chaired by Steve Norris, the former Conservative Transport Minister, announced a small operating loss in the first quarter of its financial year, which began on 1 April.
