Spectral is proud to announce that Frits Rasing, our current Finance Director, has been appointed our new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). With 20 years of experience in finance and an outstanding track record, Frits brings valuable experience to his new role. As Spectral’s CFO, Frits’ leadership skills and financial acumen are an extremely valuable asset to Spectral’s leadership team as the company grows rapidly with over 75 international employees to date.
Frits states, “We have come a long way since last August. Financial administration has been restructured and insourced. And we have created a finance team with the right skills to professionalize internal and external reporting. The next step is to be the business partner of management and colleagues from all other parts of Spectral.”
Frits’ appointment as CFO is an important milestone for both him and Spectral. Already part of the leadership team, Frits continues to work with management team Spectralites Philip Gladek (Co-Founder & CEO), Tom Westra (Co-Founder & CCO), Hans Mart Groen (Strategic Advisor), and Andrea Lamelas Puga (COO).
Co-Founder & CEO, Philip Gladek says, “Since joining the management team last year, Frits has improved Spectral’s financial management and professionalized many of our internal processes, which is very important for us to reach the next level of growth and performance. In his new role as CFO, Frits will continue to play a critical role in the development of our company. We’re all very happy about this as he’s also just a great colleague to work with.”
With Frits’ expertise, commitment to transparency and strategic vision, Spectral is well-equipped to reach new heights and thrive in the dynamic landscape of the energy transition. Frits’ appointment underscores our commitment as Spectralites to excellence and reinforces our financial stability in an evolving industry.
Providing strategic financial leadership is vital in aligning Spectral’s position as a market leader in the energy transition. I am confident that my team and I can deliver on that.
Frits Rasing, CFO
