Burrana appoints Scott Richardson new CFO
Burrana today announced the appointment of Scott Richardson as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
Effective January 1, Richardson will oversee the company’s global finance team, as well as management of cash flow, financial planning, equity activities, and profitability.
Richardson brings a wealth of cross-industry experience in accelerating companies’ growth, as well as raising capital, managing investor relations, strategic business planning, handling mergers and acquisitions, and corporate governance.
“We are elated that Scott has chosen to join our rapidly growing team,” said David Withers, Chief Executive Officer of Burrana. “Scott will help us continue to achieve our financial metrics and accelerate our growth trajectory.”
“I can’t imagine a more exciting time to join Burrana,” said Richardson. “Burrana is leading the way in new, innovative cabin technologies, challenging and overthrowing legacy ideas. David and his team are significantly improving the experience for both airlines and passengers, and I’m delighted to be a part of it.”
Richardson will succeed Andrew Mullis, who has served as the Burrana (formerly digEcor) CFO for six years. Mullis will remain at Burrana through the end of 2019, aiding in the transition to Richardson before taking an extended break ahead of his next challenge.
“We owe a lot to Andrew, who most recently saw us through our acquisition of the IFE business from Collins Aerospace. He has been instrumental to our company growth and a pleasure to work with, and for that, we thank him,” said Withers.
Richardson holds a Bachelor of Business degree from Queensland University of Technology as well as a Graduate Diploma of Business Administration from Deakin University.
