Holiday Extras has appointed an interim chief financial officer.
Deborah Stevenson joins the Kent-based company “having worked with companies all over the world”, from privately-held and private equity-backed businesses to those listed on the London and Australian stock exchanges.
The appointment comes almost a year after a management buyout valued Holiday Extras Group at £100 million.
Since that time, the group’s companies – which include Chauntry, Park-IT and Airparks – have also announced a number of significant new deals with international airports in the US, UK, Canada and continental Europe.
Matthew Pack, group chief executive of Holiday Extras, commented: “Deborah is precisely the person we need to oversee our financial operations as we move into the next phase of our ambitious five-year growth strategy.
“Holiday Extras Group has come a long way in 36 years by building and acquiring a portfolio of businesses that complement and support one another in the airport and parking technology sector.
“This calibre of financial oversight at group level will help us coordinate those businesses and thus support our growing, global network of airport customers as we work with them to roll out new technologies and solutions.”
Stevenson added: “I’m really excited to have the opportunity to work with Holiday Extras on its global expansion plans. The company has a clear vision for the future and a great vibrant culture, combining the latest technology with helpful, human touch points to support its customers.
“It’s a great personal fit for me too. A lot of the senior team share my love of sports and the outdoors and it’s great to be working so near to the beach. I can’t wait to get started and support the business through the exciting times ahead.”
