Andrew McColl has been appointed Group Finance Director at leading North East hospitality and care business, Malhotra Group.
Andrew will replace current Group Finance Director Martin Greenwood (pictured left with Andrew right and Meenu Malhotra centre) who has announced his retirement in March 2020.
Martin said: “I have known Andrew personally since 2008 when I was able to entice him across from Northern Rock to join my North East relationship team at RBS and he is joining the board at a very exciting time as a number of current key strategic and landmark developments are coming towards conclusion, whilst many others are also due to commence.
“As I embark on the next stage of my career with the group, I wish Andrew every success in his new role, which I am confident he will execute superbly.”
Andrew, who joins the group in November, will work with Martin over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition of the role.
He joins Malhotra from Teesside-based housing association, Thirteen Housing Group, where he held the post of Director of Finance (Treasury & Investment).
Andrew started his career in banking as a graduate at Northern Rock before leaving to join Natwest and RBS, initially as Relationship Manager in business banking before moving up to Portfolio Director in the corporate banking division.
He left RBS to work for HMC Group as Financial Analyst before progressing to Group Finance Director as he qualified as an accountant with ACCA.
Andrew said: “Martin’s are big shoes to fill but I am very much looking forward to working with the Malhotra family and the group for many years to come as they continue on their remarkable journey.”
