A&P names new financial director


A&P Falmouth has appointed a new financial director.

Mike Spicer has joined the ship repair business from Bovis Homes Group Plc, where he was financial director for the Thames Valley region.  He has also previously worked for Serco Group Plc as commerce manager and more recently as senior finance and commerce manager.

In his new role, Spicer will focus on optimising the company’s financial performance and strategic position. In particular, he will support the creation of A&P Group’s new defence division, which is headquartered in Falmouth.

Steve Jones, A&P Falmouth’s newly-appointed managing director of operations and site director, said: “Mike joins us at a pivotal time for A&P as we look to modernise and transform the business and his arrival follows a series of other senior-level appointments in recent months.

“Mike’s expertise and insights will be instrumental in helping us to achieve profitable growth and continuing to build our core business in support of the global shipping and maritime, oil and gas industries, and to further diversify into the emerging civil nuclear and renewable energy market sectors.  We look forward to welcoming him to the team.”

A&P Group operates seven dry docks across four strategic locations in the UK and has a sister business in Australia that provides ship repair services and support to the Royal Australian Navy.
