Taking up the role officially and joining the Sanne Group plc Board in July 2018, James will be responsible for managing the financial operations of the global business and its regional operations. James is an experienced finance professional, having most recently led Investec's Support Services Sector team.

Post listing, James has also been a key adviser to SANNE in all of the acquisitions the business has undertaken.  

Rupert Robson, Chairman of Sanne Group plc said of James’s appointment: "I am delighted that James is joining SANNE as Chief Financial Officer. He has worked very closely with Dean Godwin, SANNE's Chief Executive Officer and engaged well with the broader management team and Board at SANNE.
