YO! names Xenia Walters as group chief financial officer

The company named a new chairman earlier this month.

YO! announced that Xenia Walters has been appointed as chief financial officer (CFO) and an executive director of the board, starting 8 March.

Walters has over 20 years’ extensive experience working in a variety of senior roles with international groups gaining broad financial, business and international experience. Most recently, she held the role of group CFO of SDL PLC, the listed professional services provider, and is credited for driving the transformation and merger with RWS Holdings.

Prior to SDL, Walters held CFO roles in a number of private equity backed businesses including Frank Recruitment Group, Oxford International Education Group and INTO University Partnerships.
