Burendo appoints new finance director

Leeds-based agile business transformation firm Burendo has appointed Sadie Alton as finance director.

She joins from a competitor technical consultancy where her outstanding work led to her being shortlisted for the 2021 Northern Finance Director Award.

A graduate of Newcastle University, Sadie arrives at Burendo with more than two decades of experience in corporate finance, restructuring and as a finance director.

She is the latest high profile recruit to an almost 150-strong team at Burendo which specialises in empowering large organisations and SMEs to improve their agile adoption and delivery processes.

Set up in 2018 by Gary Green, Glenn Crossley and Austen Bell, the firm is on course to achieve an £18 million turnover in the current financial year.

Gary Green, Burendo people director, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Sadie. She is a leader in her field and a perfect fit for Burendo. Sadie has an impressive career history, having worked for some of the biggest names in business.

“She also headed her own consultancy for a significant period and is someone who leads from the front. It is fantastic to have her onboard as Burendo continues to grow rapidly.”

Sadie Alton said: “I am excited to be joining Burendo which, in its short history, has established a formidable reputation for delivering large scale business transformation nationally and globally.

“The company attracts talented and motivated individuals who flourish in a culture which puts people first. It is a privilege to be taking up the role of finance director at such an exhilarating stage of Burendo’s development.”
