We are pleased to announce that Sam Beaton has accepted a position as an executive director of Boundary Bend Limited, effective 15 January 2015.
Sam has been employed by Boundary Bend since August 2009. For the majority of the time Sam has been the group CFO and Company Secretary. Sam has a strong operational and strategic focus and during his time he has been heavily involved in all corporate transactions, including asset purchases, equity raising, debt restructures and more recently the expansion into the US. Following this new appointment, Sam will continue to hold the role of CFO and Company Secretary.
Sam is 38 years old and holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Finance) and a Bachelor of Science (Industrial Organic Chemistry) from the University of Melbourne and is also a Chartered Accountant. Sam has had over 15 years of experience in both corporate finance and accounting. Sam began his career with KPMG and since then has held senior manager roles within corporate finance and accounting, both in Australia and the UK. Sam has wide experience in financial modelling and analysis, management of corporate debt, capital raisings, business planning and strategy.
On a more sombre note, Tim Jonas has asked to take a period of unpaid leave from his role as a non-executive director. For the past few months Tim has battled health complications post surgery, and would like to focus his time and energy on making a full recovery. We hope to have Tim back on the Board in 3 to 6 months time. During Tim’s leave there will still be three non-executive directors on the board.
