Henry Howard Finance Group has announced it has appointed a new Group Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Mark Tweed will join Henry Howard Finance in October, where he will take up responsibility as Group CFO and Head of Legal. Tweed joins from Opel Vauxhall Finance, where he was held various pan European CFO and CEO roles and has spent the last 16 years in the Asset Finance sector.

Commenting on the appointment, Mark Catton, CEO of Henry Howard Finance, said: “Mark’s appointment is a real coup for us and I’m delighted he’s joining us. Mark is an outstanding talent and brings a wealth of experience and fantastic reputation in the sector, and locally. We continue to strengthen our team, having added over a dozen new key appointments over the past 6 months or so, as we invest in our platform and position ourselves as a leading funder to SMEs.”

The current CFO, Mark Burn, will be leaving Henry Howard Finance to take up a role closer to his family home.
