We welcome our new Finance and IT Director; Scott Hazledine

In our continued focus on growing our share of the UK office design and office fit-out market, we’re pleased to welcome a new member of staff to the Paramount team. Scott Hazledine joins us as finance and IT director.

Expertise & Knowledge

A graduate civil engineer, Scott qualified as a chartered accountant with Ernst & Young and has many years’ experience of working in senior finance positions within the construction industry. 

He joins us from Balfour Beatty, the leading international infrastructure group, where he was the financial controller for the group’s facilities management division and the southern region of its construction division.

Outside of work, Scott is a member of the South Wales Gliding Club and Monmouth Rowing Club. At Paramount, he’ll be responsible for the finance and IT functions in the business.

Andrew Williams, who joined Paramount as finance director at the start of 2016 has now moved into the new role of non-executive director.

Continuing success

In 2015, our most profitable year to date, we announced record financial results. This was a result of both a resurgence in the office design and fit-out sector and the fact that we won some significant contracts across the UK.

Growth continued in 2016 and while our results have yet to be announced, we're expected to show an even better performance than the previous year. Watch this space, because we'll expect to expand the Paramount team further over the next 12 months.

Growth is Paramount

Our managing director, Andrew Roberts, said, “We have experienced significant growth over the past two years and as part of our ambition to continue that growth we are pleased to announce Scott’s appointment as our finance and IT director.

“His experience and knowledge within the construction sector will ensure that we focus on increasing our profitability by tightly controlling our costs as well as improving our efficiency by developing our IT systems.“

Exciting times ahead

We’ll leave the final words to Scott. “This is an exciting time to be joining Paramount. The company has an excellent reputation within the sector, a very impressive client list, and is in a strong position financially.

“I’m looking forward to working with Andrew and the team to help achieve our ambitious growth targets and the vision of being one of the UK’s leading office design and fit-out companies.”
