Chartered accountant in the chair.

INDUSTRY finance specialist Richard Jackson has become the new chairman of the Teesside Society of Chartered Accountants With more than 10 years' experience in the petrochemical and automotive sectors behind him, Mr Jackson is currently working as a financial consultant for several North East companies.

He has been job-hunting since leaving renewable fuels company GTL Resources plc when the company closed its UK office in January. "Obviously the global economic downturn is hitting North East industry hard and many companies are just not recruiting as they try to ride out the recession," he said.

"So when outgoing TSCA chair Heather O'Driscoll asked if I would be interested in taking over from her, I eventually agreed."

Hartlepool-born Mr Jackson took a maths and physics degree at Durham University. He trained as a chartered accountant and worked for a number of North East firms before changing course to join CPL Aromas in 1998, He was later chief financial officer for PAGID UK in North Yorkshire, and worked at Petroplus Refining Teesside Ltd as financial controller, before joining GTL Resources as group financial controller two years ago.
