New appointment marks further PMY Group expansion
July 7, 2016

Leading technology enhancement firm PMY Group have announced that Etihad Stadium’s Chief Financial Officer, Chris Charleson, is to join their growing executive team in the role of Group Chief Financial Officer.

PMY has grown to employ more than 30 staff and a number of expert consultants across Australia and New Zealand and is progressively expanding into European and Asian markets.

Charleson’s appointment rounds an important period for PMY where it has re-structured its management team to ready the foundation for accelerated expansion.

Led by Managing Director Paul Yeomans, the PMY executive team now includes senior personnel from a broad range of industries and professional disciplines, including sports marketing, venue management, infrastructure, information technology and professional services.

Charleson qualified as a chartered accountant with Price Waterhouse (now PwC) in United Kingdom, spending 15 years with the company working in the UK, Europe, USA and latterly Australia, with the last five years of that time within the entertainment and media specialism.

Charleson left PwC in 2003 to become the Chief Financial Officer and company secretary of a listed retail company and after three years was appointed the Chief Financial Officer at Ticketek.

He held a variety of roles at Ticketek including Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer and interim Chief Executive.

After leaving Ticketek, Charleson launched a start-up corporate ticketing venture before becoming the Chief Financial Officer of Etihad Stadium in 2013 where he was responsible for legal, finance, human resources, ticketing and information technology.

Commenting on his new appointment, Charleson stated “I’m thrilled to be joining PMY.They have proved themselves to be leaders in this innovative area of stadium and mass public technology.

“My path has crossed with many of the PMY team as part of my role at Etihad Stadium and I’m eager to reconnect with them as a permanent member of the business, particularly at such an exciting time of their development.”

The newly structured Group CFO role will encompass the core responsibilities of financial reporting and management, audit, compliance and risk management. Charleson will additionally play a key role in corporate portfolio management, investment and capital allocation, and strategy across all of the group entities.

Announcing the appointment, Yeomans stated “Chris will be instrumental to the PMY global expansion strategy, our continuing corporatisation, and the launch of some major new media and event ventures in coming months.

“He will take executive leadership of the financial and corporate aspects across our group of businesses and add enormous value to our clients via his unique set of financial, operational, and commercial experiences.”

“We are absolutely delighted to have him on board.”
