New Financial Controller Joins The Team

Nicola Swindells joins the Duchy team as Financial Controller on 6th January, taking over the role from Steve Davies who is retiring after 35 years of invaluable service.

Nicola is ACCA qualified with a degree in Accounting and Finance and has 8 years’ property experience with Hammerson Plc and 4 years with Capital and Counties Properties Plc. Over the next 6 weeks she will work closely with Steve to ensure a smooth handover of duties and responsibilities.

Commenting on the new appointment, Duchy CFO Chris Adcock said: “Steve has helped to steer the Duchy through a period of continuous change and growth during his tenure and will be sorely missed by everyone who has worked with him. We have been at pains to ensure that we find the right person with the appropriate skills and experience and we look forward to welcoming Nicola to the team while of course wishing Steve a long and happy retirement.”

Based at the Duchy’s London HQ on Lancaster Place, Nicola will be working closely with the Rural Financial Controller to continually enhance the processes, controls, management information and efficiencies within the team and the wider Duchy.
