Peter Cornthwaite, Finance Director at Claims Consortium Group, has left the business today (16 February 2018) after opting to take early retirement.
Peter joined the company in 2014, and despite a relatively short stay make a positive mark on the business both with fellow directors and staff.
Jeremy Hyams, who appointed Peter, said: “We’re sad to lose such a popular member of the management team. Peter is a superb numbers man, but also has a keen sense of humour and insightful view of business. He was a great character to have on the board and our meetings will be a little more dull without him. We, of course, wish him and his family a great retirement together.”
Peter joined Claims Consortium after enjoying some ‘literal’ ups and downs at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and held finance roles at Next plc, Time Warner and KPMG.
Peter said: “It is impossible not to enjoy working in such as dynamic environment as Claims Consortium. I will miss working with a team of incredibly enthusiastic, committed, innovative and inspiring people.
“It is the right time for me to retire and take a well-earned holiday, and I’m looking forward to spending lots more time with my family. I wish the company all the best, and I hope to keep in touch with some good friends.”
The board presented Peter with a retirement gift, and his accounts team marked the occasion by giving him a leaving gift and cake.
