Portrait of Louisa Burdett

Louisa Burdett has joined Spirax Group today (8 July 2024) as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Board Director. Prior to this role, Louisa was Chief Financial Officer of Croda International Plc and has an exceptional track record in leading finance for UK listed companies, together with related sector and Non-Executive experience, including her current position as a Non-Executive Director and Audit Committee Chair of RS Group plc.

Louisa commented: "Spirax Group is a fantastic Company with a strong track record and significant opportunities ahead. In preparing to start my new role, the passion and commitment of colleagues around the world has really stood out for me. Over the coming weeks and months, I look forward to meeting many of the people we serve across our different stakeholder groups."

Nimesh Patel, Group Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I very much look forward to working with Louisa as we prepare for the opportunities we see ahead.  Her insights, borne off a long and successful career, as well as her strong values, will bring further strength and depth to our Group.   I would also like to thank Phil Scott for his excellent stewardship as Interim Chief Financial Officer.  Phil will complete an orderly handover to Louisa after our Half Year Results in August before taking up his new role as Finance Director for our Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions Business.”
