Cimic Group Ltd (ASX: CIM) shares are sliding lower today following the company announcing the appointment of a new chief financial officer (CFO). At the time of writing, the Cimic share price is trading 1.41% lower at $24.43, amid a broader fall in the ASX.

Who is the new CFO?

The Cimic share price is delivering a lacklustre performance today despite the company advising it has appointed Mr Emilio Grande as its new chief financial officer.

In the release, the company advised that Mr Grande has worked with Cimic Group since 2018. His time with the company has included stints as chief financial officer of Cimic business UGL and deputy chief financial officer of Cimic.

Prior to that, Mr Grande served as chief financial officer of Iridium, a leading global infrastructure developer.

He also spent a decade with Spain’s ACS Group, the parent of the Australian construction company. Mr Grande started in the Florentino Pérez-led ACS Group after leaving Banco Gallego as director of private equity investments in 2011.

Mr Grande will replace Stefan Camphausen, who has served as Cimic CFO for 15 years.

What management said

Cimic Group executive chairman and chief executive officer Juan Santamaria said:

Emilio has more than 15 years’ of international experience across banking and infrastructure in various finance leadership roles.

His experience includes several years with Cimic Group as Deputy Chief Financial Officer and, more recently, Chief Financial Officer of UGL.

Emilio’s involvement with key strategic initiatives at Cimic and across our operating companies has given him deep knowledge of our operations and equips him well for the role.
