Perth-based Perron Group has bolstered its management team with the recruitment of a dedicated chief financial officer, while also appointing a general manager of governance, taxation and risk in a new role for the company.

Adam Irving, current CFO at Automotive Holdings Group - which is in the final stages of being acquired by Brisbane's AP Eagers Group - will start as Perron's CFO in late September.

His recruitment will free up Perron chief executive Ross Robertson, who is currently both CEO and CFO.

Perron said Mr Irving had a strong background in finance with previous roles in a range of industry sectors including automotive, property and banking. 

Prior to his appointment as CFO at AHG, Mr Irving held positions with Ernst & Young, JLL Corporate Finance and GE Commercial Finance in London, and in institutional banking with Westpac.

Long-serving Perron employee Richard Hicks will also start a new role at the group, shifting from financial controller to governance, taxation and risk manager, as well as company secretary.

Perron said the new appointments were executive restructures following the passing of its founder and chairman Stan Perron last year, and reflect changing governance requirements of the group together with increased business growth.

Perron Group holds numerous shopping centres and other investments, including 50 per cent holdings in Morley’s Galleria shopping centre and the Central Park office tower in Perth.

Earlier this year, the group also purchased a 50 per cent stake in Sydney’s Westfield Burwood shopping centre for $575 million.
