New CFO joins fast-growing business
16 April 2021
CIRCULAR1 HEALTH, a COVID testing and digital health business, has expanded its senior executive team with the appointment of Paolo Benedetto as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Paolo joins Circular1 Health with many years’ experience in executive roles including a record of implementing strategic growth initiatives. He has held senior positions at Taziker, IDEX and more recently as a consulting CFO for a number of private equity businesses.
Circular1 Health CEO, Stuart MacLennan, says that as a fast-growing company, the need for an experienced CFO was incredibly urgent: “We launched the business in March 2020 and the growth we have experienced in this period has been phenomenal. We continue on an upward trajectory, enabling mission critical businesses to continue operating through this challenging time, while also expanding the digital health side of our business.
“The requirement for an experienced CFO with a solid track record in business growth was essential to support our business strategically now and in the future and Paolo brings skills and experience that will help take the management of the business’s growth to the next level.”
Paolo says he is delighted to be part of the team: “I was attracted to work with Circular1 Health due to the business’ vision and passion to make a difference to the health and wellbeing of major corporates, as well as the wider economy. It is an organisation which has developed a people focused culture, with a real ‘can do’ attitude. I am excited to be helping in the journey to deliver a truly outstanding value proposition for clients and a working environment that is inclusive and rewarding for employees.”
Paolo was recruited through executive recruitment specialist Claire Sofield at Four Recruitment. She will continue to advise Stuart and the executive leadership team on their talent management strategy as the business continues to grow.
Circular1 Health is located in Carlisle, Barrow in Furness, Manchester and Surrey. It is currently working on a number of national and international projects, providing a fully managed service to the nuclear, defence, energy and travel sectors.
