Mehta is an experienced public company finance director, having previously served on the boards of a number of AIM and Official List businesses.
He most recently worked at Rosslyn Data Technologies Plc and Northbridge Industrial Services Plc, where he also served as non-executive director (including audit and remuneration committee appointments) between April 2011 and June 2021.
He has also held senior financial roles in a variety of private growth companies and is a former non-executive director of the Quoted Companies Alliance.
Nitil Patel, who was appointed Interim CFO in March 2021, will remain with the group until the end of September 2021 to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.
Peter Kear, CEO, said: “Ash is a proven AIM CFO; his extensive experience in senior finance, non-executive and commercial roles makes him a great addition to the D4T4 board and will be key for us as the group moves ahead on the next phase of its growth journey and during this very important period of board transition.”
