Mobile payments company Bango PLC (LON:BGO) has appointed former Smith & Nephew PLC (LON:SN. finance director Carolyn Rand as interim chief financial officer following the departure of Rachel Elias-Jones.
Rand, who was finance director at Smith & Nephew for 10 years until 2012, will remain as interim CFO of Bango until at least April 2019 or until a permanent replacement for Elias- Jones is found.
Most recently, Rand was chief operating officer of BirdLife International, a nature conservation non-profit organisation. She was also chief executive of biotech research firm Isogenica Ltd and a finance director at Sepura PLC, a supplier of digital radio systems and software applications.
“I look forward to working with Carolyn as CFO and also benefitting from her experience in CEO and CFO roles in fast growing technology businesses and public companies,” said Bango chief executive Ray Anderson.
“Her experience in maintaining tight financial control and driving profitability in global businesses will be a real asset to Bango as it grows and thrives in an exciting market."
Bango announced last month that Elias-Jones is stepping down on November 12 after two years as CEO and four years as financial controller at the company.
