Hardware house Brisant Secure has appointed Clive Burnett as finance director, a new role created as part of the business’ growth plan. Clive brings more than 20 years of experience in finance to the role. The Brisant team hopes that his expertise and knowledge will complement existing skills within the company’s senior management team, and help the business to develop further.
Clive said: “Brisant Secure has seen phenomenal growth over the past few years and it’s an exceptionally well known brand in the trade. It is the strongest out there for what it does. Brisant is all the more impressive because its growth is organic, which is harder to achieve.
“I want to develop on the strong foundations already in place and to improve procedures to allow the business to get to that next level. Small businesses that grow rapidly require systems to be put in place to allow for the next stage of growth. I want to ensure there are no barriers or blockages and that the infrastructure can support that ongoing growth.
“I recognised a huge opportunity with Brisant Secure and I’m excited to watch the business continue to thrive. I feel like I’m part of an important management team and I am looking forward to being a key decision maker in the business.”
Before joining Brisant, Clive spent 20 years in the confectionery industry, overseeing complex integrations and supporting the continued growth of Valeo Confectionery into a highly profitable business. Valeo’s roots go back to 1848; the company owns famous brands like Barratt, Fox’s Glacier Mints and Poppets.
Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant Secure, said: “Appointing Clive as our new finance director is part of our plan for growth which, at its centre, is the development of opportunities for customers. Clive’s knowledge, expertise and experience will help Brisant Secure thrive even further, and his connections will help us to be an organisation that is fit for purpose each step of the way as we grow and develop. We are delighted to welcome Clive to our team, and look forward to working with him as Brisant continues to flourish.”
Brisant Secure has been raising standards in the door industry since 2013, with its ultra-secure Ultion family of locks and Sweet, its range of corrosion resistant hardware. The company has featured in the annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 for the past two years as one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses.
