Welcome James Reeves, Group Chief Financial Officer

We’re excited to welcome James Reeves to the British Engineering Services group as Group Chief Financial Officer.

James comes to us from international insurance company, Liberty Specialty Markets, where he spent more than seven years in senior roles, including his most recent position as Deputy Chief Financial Officer.  He is both extremely experienced in our sector and has been heavily involved in Liberty’s strategic activity including their significant organic and acquisition driven growth.  We know this will be beneficial in helping us deliver our plans for 2022 and beyond as we continue to grow our Group.

Before joining Liberty, James spent six years with RSA Insurance where he first developed his understanding of the Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) industry. During this time, he was instrumental in helping expand their European offering, positioning businesses for profit and implementing a new financial control framework.

On top of his day-to-day CFO role, James has also joined our Executive Team.  He will be involved in helping shape the future of our company as we continue to position ourselves for a brilliant future.

“We are delighted to have James on the team.  His experience and skillset speak for themselves, and this combined with his customer focus, extensive experience working with brokers and his energy and enthusiasm makes him a great fit for our business,” said Stewart Kay, Group CEO.

“It’s fantastic to be joining the British Engineering Services Group at such an exciting time.  Their plans for the coming years are impressive and I’m delighted to be playing a part in delivering the very best service for our customers,” said James.
