JC Payne (UK) Ltd and Otis Vehicle Rentals Ltd are pleased to announce the recent appointment of Stephen Horrocks to the position of Group Finance Director. Steve started his role on Monday 4th November 2019, assuming control and responsibility for all financial aspects of the businesses to support the delivery of the companies’ ambitious growth plans, along with providing strategic support and input to the Board.


Steve started his career at Clement Keys and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2007, becoming a partner in the business in 2013. Whilst in practice, Steve worked with many SME owner managed businesses across a broad spectrum of sectors, including those in both automotive and manufacturing. Steve joins after 4 years at TeacherActive, one of the largest independently owned specialist Education Recruiters in the UK, where he held the position of Chief Financial Officer since 2018, and Finance Director prior to this date.


Steve says: “I am very excited to have started my new role. Having known the businesses for some time and watched the group more than double its revenue in the last 6 years alone, I know I am joining at an exciting time and look forward to working with the whole team to help the business continue its growth moving forward.”


This senior appointment means that David Scorer, who recently celebrated his 15 year anniversary working for the group, will be able to fully concentrate on his role as Group Operations Director, having been promoted in January 2018 from his prior position of Financial Controller. David has worked for the group for his whole career, having started valeting trucks and progressing to hold positions including Rental and General Manager, prior to utilising his accounting degree as Group Financial Controller. David leads all operational aspects of the businesses’ activities, including overseeing the management of the group’s 130,000 square feet manufacturing facility and 200 plus commercial vehicle rental fleet.


Managing Director, Neil Brandrick, commented “this is a very exciting appointment for our group and we are delighted to welcome Steve to our team. Steve has been known to the business for some time and brings with him a wealth of experience in working with SME businesses who have been on growth journeys similar to ourselves. The fact that this appointment will allow David to focus all his efforts on increasing the significant impact he has had already on our operations, will only lead to a better experience for all our key stakeholders – our customers, colleagues and suppliers. It is also great timing, allowing us to recognise and celebrate David’s recent anniversary and the journey he has had with the group over the last 15 years.”
