JCW Group has appointed Perry Dowell as Chief Financial Officer. Perry joins the global talent specialist to oversee the finance operation of the £50m turnover group, whilst also leading the company’s growing shared service operations.

JCW Group CEO, Jamie Woods, commented “I’m delighted that Perry has joined us in what is an exciting phase of growth for the group. Perry’s track record speaks for itself and I’m confident he’s the ideal person to ensure our excellent shared service function goes from strength to strength as we continue to grow and diversify the group. With more than 250 people to support, across 4 businesses and 7 offices, I’m looking forward to seeing the impact he makes on our business.”

Perry Dowell added “My decision to join JCW was based on a number of factors, not least the incredible “can do” atmosphere I got from the leadership team and the wider business. JCW Group is incredibly unique with exceptional talent, a phenomenal brand and a real family culture – which is usually hard to maintain when scaling a business to the size that the group is now.

As the first external C-Suite hire in the business, I will be looking to bring my experience and skillset to bear in helping the team build out a portfolio of businesses that are truly world class. Needless to say, I am very excited to be joining Jamie and the team on what I am sure will be an amazing journey over the next few years.”
