HSC appoints new head of finance

Mobile distributor, HSC, has appointed Andrew Dinnivan as the new head of finance for the business. Dinnivan, who has 16 years experience in corporate finance, starts at HSC on Tuesday 31 August.

Dinnivan is being bought in to the new role to oversee all aspects of HSC finance, including the payment of dealer commissions, revenue share and all associated processes.

He will report to central Carphone Warehouse Finance in its Acton HQ, as well as to head of HSC, Bob Sweetlove. Dinnivan will be based with the HSC team at the distribution centre in Poole, Dorset.

Sweetlove commented on his latest team member: “Dinnivan brings years of experience, professionalism and a keen finance brain into HSC, but crucially also has the personal skills key to ensure our employees and customers get the support they need from finance.

“He will be tasked with ensuring that all of our finance processes provide the highest levels of service to our dealers at all times, focusing on paying commissions accurately on time, every time, dealing with commission queries in a clear and transparent manner and ensuring that the growing revenue share element is paid in a consistent and clear way,” continued Sweetlove.

Dinnivan is a Fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants and has a BA Hons Degree in Business Studies.

He comes to HSC following five years at Barclays Bank, where his latest role was Finance Business Partner for Barclays Group Finance. Prior to that, he spent eight years at Liverpool Victoria, where he carried out a wide range of roles gaining experience across all key accounting disciplines working within Corporate Finance and in key commercial areas including Marketing and Sales and General Insurance. Before that, he spent three years at BDO Stoy Hayward, where his experience ranged from Company Audit to Accounts preparation, and VAT & Income Tax Returns.

Outside of work, Dinnivan is Chair of Finance Governors at his local school. He enjoys cycling, running and spending time with his wife and three sons.
