The Financial Review reports Spottiswood will be tasked with guiding SCL to a potential ASX listing, as mentioned in a communique from CEO Brendan Boyd.

"Paul's extensive strategic, commercial, financial and legal experience will assist our business immeasurably as we embark on the next evolution of growth, including the possibility of an initial public offering on the ASX in coming years," he is quoted as saying.

At the time of SCL’s recent acquisition of Rocke, the company noted it "marks an exciting next step in SCL’s journey and aligns with the strategy SCL has held for the past five years in relation to growth".

Spottiswood held previous roles as managing director as fellow advisory firm Capital Success, executive general manager at P&O Maritime Services and corporate finance executive at Transurban.
