Beleaguered property services firm Erinaceous has appointed Dominic Lavelle as its finance director.
The previous finance director, Michael Pearson, left the company in September as part of a major boardroom shakeup in the wake of poor half-year results and the breaching of banking covenants.
He resigned in April this year after the company was caught up in a fraud scandal involving its slate division, which resulted in McAlpine paying auditor Deloitte a £6m bill.
Lavelle was cleared of any involvement in the fraud.
Speaking of his appointment today he said: ‘I am looking forward to joining the team and working on the stabilisation, strengthening and growth of Erinaceous.’
