Most of Ged Murray's experience comes from the motor industry. He was previously group finance director of Benfield Motor Group until its acquisition by Lookers plc last autumn. Before that he held the same role at Reg Vardy plc and subsequently Northgate, the commercial vehicle asset rental company.
At Ardent he succeeds interim CFO Nick Pulford, who played a significant role in the formation of Ardent and will remain with the business for a handover period. Ardent Hire Solutions was established from the amalgamation of Fork Rent and One Call Hire in August 2015.
Ardent chief executive Steve Corcoran said: “Following other senior appointments made over the last few months, I believe we have a first class team in place to support Ardent Hire Solutions in delivering on its long term growth plans.”
