WETHERBY-BASED farm-scale renewables specialist Earthmill has appointed Andy Mill as finance director.
Mill has served in a number of FD and consulting roles in the last five years, including terms with Lexia Solutions and Andrew Page. The former PwC accountant will run the finances of £12m Earthmill from commercial director Mark Woodward.
The business has grown by more than 50% in the past two years, and a dedicated FD will help plan for growth and further fundraising, Woodward said.
“Andy has the experience of five years as finance director in a fast moving group, and a background with a big four firm that is ideal for us,” Woodward added.
Earthmill was founded in 2009 by MD Steve Milner, and provides and installs medium-scale turbines.
“Earthmill is a great Yorkshire success story. The business has grown organically from an entrepreneurial beginning in Steve’s garage, through city investment last year and most recently raising £1.25m of finance through a crowd-funding first that completed last month,” said new FD Mill.
“The rapid growth and innovation right through the organisation has been remarkable, and I am looking forward to helping maintain that trajectory.”
