And the answer is….Philip Wood
In October I posed the question as to who the new FD at Microgen would be. The company announced that they had hired someone but could not reveal their name.
Microgen plc has now revealed that Philip Wood ACA will join as Group Finance Director on 2 January 2007.
Mr Wood was Group Finance Director of AttentiV Systems Group plc from November 2003 to October 2005, having joined the Group in March 1998. During his time as Group Finance Director of AttentiV, Mr Wood successfully floated the company on AIM in March 2004 before overseeing the acquisition of the company by TietoEnator Corporation in 2005. Mr Wood, who qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Arthur Andersen in 1996, is currently Chief Financial Officer of The CarbonNeutral Company Limited, a private equity backed carbon trading company.
