Preston-based construction and property company, Eric Wright Group, has appointed a new group finance director.

Gill Chadwick, who was previously group financial controller at the firm, has been promoted to the new role with immediate effect.

Gill, who has worked in a variety of finance roles, has a wide range of experience in audit, business advisory and financial management.

Prior to joining Eric Wright Group, she was finance director for transport provider H&M distribution and spent fourteen years at Deloitte LLP, in Manchester, where she worked with some of the North West’s largest property and construction businesses.

In the new role, Gill will have responsibility for the finance functions of all divisions within the Eric Wright Group.

She will also be responsible for funding and financial strategy, including investment in future regeneration and development schemes and financial planning for Eric Wright Group’s growing investment property portfolio.

Speaking about her appointment, Gill said: “It is a real privilege to have been appointed to this position.

“Having spent the last twelve months with the company, I’ve experienced first-hand the first-class services it delivers as well as the valuable contribution it makes to the local communities in which it operates and what a difference it makes to the people who live and work there.

“I’m incredibly proud to be a part of that team and I am looking forward to the exciting challenges that lie ahead to shape the future of the business.”

Eric Wright Group managing director, Jeremy Hartley, said: “Gill has already made a significant contribution to the management of the Group’s finances during her time with us, bringing excellent experience and knowledge of the commercial property market to many aspects of our business.

“Her promotion is a key strategic appointment to the main board at a period of significant growth and will ensure our broader business plan strategies receive the best possible financial and commercial input.”
