Door Group, part of ASSA ABLOY, has introduced two new members of its finance team.

Amanda Hand is the new Finance Director for ASSA ABLOY Door Group and has been with the company for around six months.
Hand is a chartered accountant with ten years of experience working in various finance roles in the industry.
The second of the recent additions to the team is Steven Porter, Budget and Costs Accountant.
Hand said: “There are many people here who have been in this industry for 30 ears, so it’s great to be able to tap into that level of experience. There is also a real passion for moving the business forward over the coming years.
“Sometimes, you need that to help change the company’s direction. From what I have seen, I firmly believe that we in the Door Group have so much potential with our great products and people.
“I hope I bring a new perspective and fresh thinking. Anyone can easily fall into the trap of continuing with the status quo, but a new person can instantly challenge the why and that’s what I’ve been trying to do so far.”
Porter said: “You spend a third of your life in the workplace, so if your colleagues truly want to invest in that business, that is a positive.
“Everyone wants to help you in whatever capacity they can. You can see a passion for the company in each of its employees. The team are all vastly experienced, with many of them being with the business for years.”
The duo has already implemented positive internal business change, taking time to educate employees to help them understand why something is being done differently.
They have also given colleagues chance to voice their perspectives and ideas on how best to improve processes.
