The Camping and Caravanning Club has appointed Sabina Voysey as its new Finance Director with immediate effect.
Sabina has been with The Club for nine years and previously held the position of Finance Manager.
She will now head up a 15-strong team and will focus her efforts on the financial requirements of The Camping and Caravanning Club Group, The Club and Club Units whilst assessing and monitoring the impact its subsidiaries, including Forest Holidays, have on The Club.
"The opportunity to take on the role of Finance Director is an exciting one and I am looking forward to working as part of the senior management team.
"The Club provides a challenge to the management team in terms of ensuring that the organisation is managed as a business, whilst acknowledging that it is still a Club, run by its members for its members.
"This is particularly significant when taking a financial view on the organisation."
The announcement comes only six months after The Club revealed that it would be investing £29 million over the next five years to bring its 110-strong Site network up to Club benchmark standard.
"The Club’s ambitious plans require the organisation to perform well, operationally, in order to generate the cash to cover this venture."
Director General Robert Louden is delighted to have welcomed Sabina on to the senior management team and said:
"Sabina has a great deal of experience of the Club and is well qualified to fulfil the role.
“Sabina will now be reviewing the structure of the Finance Department to support this new role.”
Sabina teams up with fellow directors Robert Louden (Director General), Matthew Eastlake (Marketing & Communications), Bob Hill (Sites), Garry Barr (Business Systems and Administration), Richard Grimsdale (Travel Services) and Paul Jones (Membership Services).
