Marmox appoints Finance Director

Continuing to plan for the future, Marmox Ltd. has strengthened its board by promoting its current Finance Manager to the newly created post of Finance Director with immediate effect. The move follows founding family member, Jonathan Parsons, having been appointed as Business Development Director as his parents, Harry and Anne, prepare to take a less active role in running the company.

Having been at the company since 2014, Richard Kent-Smith previously worked for a firm of chartered accountants where he was involved for some years in preparing VAT returns and management accounts on behalf of Marmox, before the company created the position of Finance Manager in order to recruit him as a member of staff: a position where he has successfully applied his people skills as well as his aptitude for numbers. He reflected:

“I have always been financially focused and like to connect with and assist all the employees, very much offering data driven guidance and decision making and now, going forwards, it is about providing stability for the company as a board member. Interestingly over the last four years since Covid, we have doubled our turnover, partly through organic growth and also from drawing on the momentum for change within the industry to improve thermal performance in response to Part L and other changes.”

Richard, 51, is married to Michelle and has two sons, Oliver and Jamie. He has wide interests including photography and astronomy, while he plays golf and is an ardent Liverpool fan and having at one time coached at Chatham Town, he still follows the Medway club where his eldest son is a member of the reserve team.

Sarah Viney Managing Director commented:

“Richard Kent-Smith has been successfully filling the role of Finance Manager since 2014 and has proved himself to be a hard-working and dedicated member of the team, who has helped take the company from strength to strength in recent years. I am absolutely delighted to have Richard as a fellow director. His skills and knowledge have helped us to grow the company over the last few years and it is great to be able to recognise his invaluable contribution by appointing him as a company director.”
