Transline appoints financial controller
Woodhouse will join the head office team at its Brighouse office, north of Huddersfield.
Woodhouse, who hails from Huddersfield, has extensive previous experience of the manufacturing industries. His CV boasts prior roles at Keighley-based Platinum Stairlifts, and at Reliance Precision, manufacturer and distributor of electro-mechanical components and sub-assemblies for the medical, scientific, aerospace and defence industries.
At Transline Group, which was established in 1994 and has 70 locations across the UK, Sean will be responsible for supporting the Finance Director through a wide range of responsibilities. He comes to the role armed with knowledge and skills across all levels and areas of finance, garnered over more than 15 years. Sean worked his way up the rungs of the financial ladder, having started out as a trainee accountant post A-levels.
Sean’s appointment comes at the end of an eventful year, which saw a significant increase in turnover for the Group due to international expansion and marked the most lucrative 12 months in the company’s history. Transline Group now has successful operations across the globe, in such diverse locations as Thailand and Poland. Signing contracts with some of the world’s premier internet retailers has boosted the bottom line still further.
Paul Beasley, Managing Director at Transline Group, remarked: “There’s nothing like a new recruit to breathe life into a company, and we are looking forward to Sean making his mark on the team. The work we have put into international expansion recently has paid off handsomely, and we’re investing heavily in staff training and development.”
Jon Taylor, also Managing Director at Transline Group, added: “Starting to operate in new locations across the world has been really exciting for us as a business, and we’re glad Sean will be joining us on the journey to even greater success in the future. His specialisms and experience in the fields of systems development and annual statutory account production means he is filling a niche but necessary job in the team. It might not mean much to most people, but the Transline team are confident putting the job in his capable hands!”
Transline Group’s experience allows them to develop specialised staffing solutions across a broad range of industry sectors and business needs.
