Kerrie Murray appointed CEO of Pryme Group
Pryme Group is happy to announce that we have strengthened our senior management team with the promotion of a key figure to equip the business for future growth. Kerrie Murray has been appointed to the role of chief executive officer (CEO).
Kerrie joined Pryme Group in June 2018 as our chief financial officer (CFO), having enjoyed more than 10 years working in the oil and gas industry – latterly as director of international finance at Forum Energy Technologies.
As CFO, Kerrie was responsible for delivering Pryme Group’s long-term growth strategy through accurate reporting, streamlined processes, and improved cashflow. Kerrie transformed the company’s finance function; significantly reducing reporting times, upgrading processes and systems, and empowering colleagues across five locations through training and mentoring.
Lawrence Ross, chairman of Pryme Group, commented: “Kerrie’s track record as CFO of the company has been impressive during the past two years in creating value and steering the company finances during challenging times.
“In addition, since February, following the departure of the previous CEO, Kerrie has undertaken the role on an interim basis. During this time, she has proven her leadership skills and depth of understanding of the business; leaving us in no doubt as to her ability to drive substantial performance improvements and take Pryme towards a healthy future.
“We have thought hard about this appointment and considered a variety of options but, rather fortunately, by far the best choice was already on board. Kerrie’s replacement as CFO will be announced shortly.”
Kerrie is a chartered accountant and graduate from the University of Aberdeen and lives in Inverurie. In 2019 at the Press & Journal Energy Voice Gold Awards she won the Dr. Mildred Dresselhaus Award, which recognises the accomplishments of women working in the energy industry.
Kerrie Murray said: “I’m extremely pleased to have been given the opportunity to lead a progressive company that has ambitious plans to establish itself across multiple industry segments, both in the UK and internationally.
“With the support of my colleagues across all parts of the business, I am confident that we can take full advantage of the group’s undoubted potential and emerge from the prevailing conditions in a strong position ready to achieve our longer-term growth objectives.”
