Red7Marine, the UK’s leading provider of jack up barges to the near-shore marine construction industry, is delighted to announce that Paul Aldous has joined the business in the role – Head of Finance.

With over 30 years’ experience, Paul is qualified with the Association of Charted Certified Accountants and is a fellow member. Paul’s career in the finance industry began at the age of 16 when he joined a local firm of accountants straight from school. Paul then began his accountancy qualifications with the firm and stayed with them for six years carrying out accounts preparation and auditing. Following this, Paul joined another local firm before making the big move to a commercial environment.

Paul spent three years with a company who provided pipework for petrol forecourts before spending 15 years with Norfolkline, working in logistics and transportation. Paul’s last role was with a  blind manufacturer.

Looking for a new venture, Paul wanted his next role to be with a company that was forward-thinking, and was recommended to speak with Red7Marine. From the outset, Paul collated a in-depth financial plan that supports the continued growth and development of Red7Marine.

Paul comments: “My role with Red7Marine is extremely varied and interesting.

It’s very different to the previous industries that I have worked in and it’s a welcome change.

The team has been incredibly welcoming and I’m settling in very well. I have really enjoyed finding out more about the scope of work Red7Marine undertakes and its forward thinking, innovative solutions. The company’s approach to challenges and its solid track record truly positions the company as a leader in the industry.
