The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at an international bakery firm based in Bromborough has been named Finance Director of the Year of a large business at an awards ceremony in Liverpool.
Matthew Acheson was given the honour at the Finance Director of the Year awards – covering the Liverpool, North Wales and Wirral & West Cheshire regions – which recognises and celebrates the outstanding work of the region’s financial directors and their teams.
Matthew’s award win was a reflection of the significant structural changes within the business over the last 12-18 months, and the critical role played by our finance teams. Baker & Baker was formed following the sale of CSM Ingredients in April 2021, with the complex business separation being led by Matthew and his team.
Later in the year, Matthew led the subsequent divestment of our North American business, Brill Inc. as Baker & Baker became a predominately European bakery manufacturer.
Matthew commented, “It’s a huge honour to be named Finance Director of the Year. The award is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our finance colleagues based on the Wirral and throughout Europe, in reshaping a business that is now a clear market leader in fresh bakery products.”
