Carbon Revolution has appointed experienced business executive Gerard Buckle as its next chief financial officer.
Mr Buckle has previously held senior executive positions with a range of listed and unlisted companies, including most recently Incitec Pivot and prior to that with Ernst and Young, Bonlac Foods, Orica and Repco. He is a chartered accountant and his prior roles have involved full responsibility for sales and operations. He also ran the Investor Relations function at Incitec Pivot before his most recent role of VP Southern Regions
Carbon Revolution CEO Jake Dingle said the appointment reflected the company’s expanding operations and increasing engagement with external investors. He said Mr Buckle brought extensive experience that would clearly enhance the company’s operations and capabilities.
Mr Dingle said: “Gerard has driven transformational change in many of his previous roles and brings a passion for developing and leading great teams, which makes him an exceptional fit for Carbon Revolution.”
“Carbon Revolution has been on a strong growth trajectory since we first established the company 15 years ago. We now supply our wheels globally to some of the world’s leading car manufacturers and continue to explore new markets. Meanwhile our investor base has also expanded, particularly through our recent capital raising with the issue of convertible notes.”
“I would like to acknowledge Bryce Houghton’s contribution as the company’s CFO over the past 18 months and wish him the best as he pursues opportunities outside Carbon Revolution.”
Mr Buckle takes up the position on 9 September.
