The chief financial officer of Checkit has stepped down.

The Cambridge firm revealed in a statement to the London Stock Exchange that Aylsa Muir has left the role to pursue other opportunities.

Greg Price, previously director of finance at the listed firm, will replace her on a permanent basis with immediate effect.  

Price spent 10 years working in finance roles at Diageo in the UK and USA, culminating in the position of financial controller for its UK business.

He has spent the last 10 years in senior finance roles in technology and aviation businesses, with a focus on cash management and strategic planning. 

Since joining Checkit, as well as his finance responsibilities, Price has led the group’s digital transformation programme, which aims to deliver an enhanced customer experience and increased revenue generation and efficiency for Checkit.

“I want to thank Aylsa for her valuable contribution over the last 12 months and I am delighted that we have been able to promote an internal candidate into such an important role,” said CEO Kit Kyte.

“I have personally worked with Greg over the past seven months, and he has proven to be consistently reliable and has a great track record of delivering under pressure.

“I have no doubt that he will be able to build on the work that Aylsa has started and that he will hit the ground running.”
