David BorlandHavelock Europa, the shop and office interiors fitter, has appointed Donald Borland as chief financial officer.

He will succeed Ciaran Kennedy, who will stand down after the Fife company announces its full year results on 25 April.

Mr Borland, 50, is a former group finance director at Miller Group, the Edinburgh-based house builder and construction company where he spent 18 years in various finance and accounting roles.

Mr Ritchie said: “While I am sorry to see Ciaran leave the business, I am very pleased that we have been able to recruit such a highly qualified replacement.

“Donald’s significant financial expertise and experience of executive roles will be of huge value to the team here.

“Ciaran has been a great support to me during my time as chief executive and a vital part of the work we have done to reshape the business.  He leaves with our best wishes.”
