    Spence brings over 13 years of experience as a CFO of large, international businesses, and has operated across Australasia, North America and Europe, in a 30-year career. Over the last 14 years, Spence has held the CFO position at five different energy companies.

    The CTM board thanked Patterson for his continued support and significant contribution made as acting global chief financial officer.

    Managing director, Jamie Pherous said, “We have built an exceptionally strong Group Finance function. These changes will add further depth of experience to help the business deliver on an ambitious five-year growth strategy to be outlined further at our half year release. I would like to welcome James Spence to the team, and to thank James Patterson for his significant contribution as acting CFO”.
