Fiberweb's CFO Daniel Abrams to Depart; Kate Miles Promoted to Group Finance Director
Fiberweb, a speciality industrial materials business, has announced that Daniel Abrams, chief financial officer (CFO) since February 2008, will leave the group at the end of March 2012. Abrams joined the group at the earlier stages of its turnaround programme and was a key member of the management team that drove steady performance improvement during 2008-10 and accomplished the transformational sale of Fiberweb’s hygiene business. Following the sale of the hygiene business, the group will become smaller and more focused.
Kate Miles, currently finance director of Fiberweb’s hygiene division, will be promoted to group finance director, effective on Abrams’ departure. Miles joined Fiberweb in September 2006 as group financial controller and was promoted to her current position in October 2010. She qualified as a chartered accountant with Ernst & Young and subsequently worked in positions of increasing responsibility at Reed Elsevier and First Technology.
