Synectics, a specialist of advanced surveillance tech and networked security systems, has appointed David Bedford as Finance Director.

From 6 January 2020, Mr Bedford will lead the company’s Finance and Administration from its Sheffield headquarters.

A period of overlap will allow for a handover of responsibilities with the current Warwickshire-based team, led by acting Finance Director Amanda Larnder, remaining in place until April 2020.

Over the last 15 years, Mr Bedford has held several senior finance positions within IMI Precision, the largest division of IMI Plc, the FTSE-250 specialist engineering group.

Most recently, he served in a global role as Commercial Finance Director, supporting major new product launches, working on acquisitions and helping drive the organisation’s digital transformation.

Prior to joining IMI, David spent 7 years with Jaguar Land Rover.
