CAMBRIDGE-based digital entertainment business Amino Technologies has appointed Mark Carlisle as its CFO.
He will join the business on 22 August, with Julian Sanders serving as interim CFO until that time.
Carlisle has experience in public company finance teams, having served over the past six years in senior finance roles at three publicly listed international technology companies. He also has ten years of audit experience, gained with the technology, media and telecommunications practice at Deloitte, where he served from 2000 to 2010, rising to become the unit’s senior manager.
He will join Amino from Crossrider, where he is currently serving as CFO. In that role, which he has held since August 2014, he was part of the team which successfully raised $75m (£51m) as part of its IPO on AIM in September 2014. Prior to that, he was CFO of derivatives trading software company FFastFill from April 2011 until August 2014.
Amino non-executive chairman Keith Todd CBE said: “On behalf of the board and the entire company, I look forward to welcoming to Mark as he joins us at this exciting stage in our development. I have had the pleasure of working first-hand with Mark over a number of years and I am confident that his energy, rigour and considerable experience will make him an excellent fit with our existing executive and board team.”
