Ingredients supplier Puratos UK has named Zachory Frost as Finance Director.
Frost has 19 years’ experience in finance, having trained as an accountant with a small local accountancy firm and qualifying in 2001.
Following a period as an Associate Partner he then moved to Australia to join a Sydney-based accountancy firm, specialising within the pharmaceutical industry.
Upon returning to the UK Frost changed career paths from accountancy practice to industry, joining a UK subsidiary of a global food flavour manufacturer as Head of Finance. He subsequently held a similar role with a global professional coffee solutions company, before joining Puratos UK.
Frost brings his wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to head up the UK finance team; “I am excited to join a family-owned, well-established business in an industry I know well and enjoy working in greatly. I am looking forward to the challenges the role offers and meeting and working with all of the people that make up the Puratos family, as well as their clients and partners” said Frost.
Frost’s vision is growth enhancing rather than retrospective performance, moving from financial modelling to a suite of information – giving every function information as quickly and regularly as possible, allowing key decisions to be made faster and adapted more rapidly. The Covid pandemic has accelerated the need for information quicker both as a business and for Puratos’ customers and this new strategy will enable this.
“Financial business partnership offers agility to business” adds Frost.
