Annabel Mantel has joined Brisant-Secure as finance director. “Annabel is the perfect person to enable Brisant to forge ahead with measured growth,” said Nick Dutton, CEO of Brisant-Secure, “ensuring customers and suppliers continue to receive exceptional service. Her mixture of finance and commercial skills are a perfect match for the business at this point in time.”
Brisant gained investment from the British Growth Fund (BGF) earlier in 2021, to support ambitious long-term growth and enable further innovations. Annabel comes to Brisant from a varied background in finance. She started at Ernst and Young and trained in audit, before moving to work in financial services, spending ten years with GE Capital and Santander. In 2016, she left to set up her own consultancy, working for small- and medium-sized enterprises. She comes to Brisant from Casselllie.
Speaking about the Brisant team, Annabel said: “It’s a good bunch of people; Steve and Nick have built a team that want to stay with the business long term. That’s an attraction. It’s the people that you work with and spend every day with that are the most important; everyone here is pulling in the same direction.”
She added: “Brisant is doing phenomenally well and managed to secure investment from BGF. It feels like I am on familiar ground. It’s a nice culture and a business that fundamentally works and has lots of opportunity to grow.”
