Halifax clean-tech company CarbonCure Technologies Inc. is continuing to grow its team of talented minds by acquiring John Paul Furey as its Chief Financial Officer. As the company’s new CFO, Furey will be responsible for developing strategic financial solutions, while helping to ensure sound financial management and prudent fiscal reporting.
“The future growth prospect of CarbonCure is what makes this such an exciting company,” said Furey on taking up his new role as CFO. “It’s intriguing to be part of a sustainable solution. There’s more to this business than business itself—there’s a cause to believe in, and I think that’s how CarbonCure has been able to attract and build such a great team.”
Furey has several years of financial management experience, gained through servicing a variety of entrepreneurial clients from diverse industries. Previously, he was part of senior management teams with KPMG LLP from 2009-2014, and with Bermuda-based Consolidated Services Limited from 2006-2009. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce from Saint Mary’s University, and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nova Scotia.
While with KPMG, Furey served as senior manager on the CarbonCure financial statement assurance engagements during 2012 and 2013.
“JP is an ideal fit to lead CarbonCure’s financial management,” said Robert Niven, CarbonCure’s CEO and founder. “He brings a wealth of experience in high-growth operations—especially in tech startups and international business.”
With the help of Furey’s financial guidance, CarbonCure will be positioning itself for further expansion opportunities in 2015. The company’s green concrete is already beginning to make an impact in the North American building market. Concrete masonry made at Permacon using CarbonCure’s carbon sequestration technology arrived this month at the company’s most recent project: York University’s Lassonde School of Engineering in Toronto. The new building features over 100,000 CarbonCure blocks, helping the designers and the university to reach their sustainability goals.
