Commercial cleaning company Mrs Buckét has welcomed a new head of finance to its senior management team.
A Swansea-based chartered accountant with more than 30 years’ experience, Jon Blakemore has built up experience working for diverse organisations, including FTSE 100 companies, US corporations, and both international and UK-based privately owned businesses.
In his role, Blakemore will be responsible for the strategic direction of the company, driving commercial results, assessing income streams and costs, and achieving profit and loss, cashflow and KPI objectives.
As well as managing and developing the finance team and carrying out finance and data analysis, he will also be tasked with forecasting and modelling the financial requirements to meet the strategic intent of the business.
“Part of Mrs Buckét’s appeal is that it is a fast-growing, ambitious organisation,” said Blakemore. “It is so exciting to see such a forward-thinking company working hard to make tangible changes in their industry.
“Every day at Mrs Buckét is different, the environment is fast-paced and challenging. I’m very much looking forward to working with my colleagues to help grow the business while delivering a top-class service to our customers.”
Mrs Buckét chief executive Rachael Flannagan added: “To have someone with Jon’s level of financial acumen and experience join the team is testament to the way the business is headed. We have ambitious growth plans over the coming years and adding someone of Jon’s calibre to our senior management team is central to our long-term strategy.”
