The Fishawack Group of Companies is pleased to announce the appointment of Jenifer Kirkland as the Group’s Chief Financial Officer. Jenifer also joins the Fishawack Board, taking over the Chief Financial Officer role from Dominic Miller, who will assume the responsibilities of Chief Operations Officer, working closely with Oliver Dennis, Chief Executive Officer, on further agency acquisitions.
Jenifer originally qualified as a pharmacist before directing her career towards Finance. She has previously held positions at Ernst and Young, BT, Pearson, and Edif Group, and most recently was the Chief Financial Officer for Kinapse Ltd, the life sciences consultancy. Her familiarity with pharmaceutical clients as well as experience working with private equity will enable Jenifer to make an immediate contribution to the business in her new role.
“These are exciting times for the Fishawack Group as we continue to build both our global team and the breadth of services we offer our clients,” explained Oliver Dennis. “Jenifer’s experience and leadership will be invaluable to scaling up our finance function as we set out on our next phase of growth.”
“Jenifer will assume overall responsibility for Fishawack’s internal and external financial reporting,” said Dominic Miller, current Chief Financial Officer. “We’ve recently taken on investment from LDC, and having Jenifer on board will free up my time to pursue further acquisitions for the Group in the US and Europe.”
“Jenifer clicked with the current Board members as soon as we met,” added Gail Flockhart, Group Managing Director.
Jenifer Kirkland commented: “Having understood the Fishawack team’s strategy and plan to grow the Group, I am looking forward to being part of such a thriving company, contributing to the success, and meeting the teams across the offices who are making this happen.”
