Electronic cigarette maker Skycig has appointed Bruce Casely, the former finance chief of US online advertising firm Digital Globe Services (DGS), as its chief financial officer.

The Edinburgh-based company, which was bought by US tobacco giant Lorillard in a £60 million deal in October, said Casely would help the firm “integrate smoothly” into an international corporation with complex financial reporting requirements.

Skycig president and co-founder Tom Rolfe said: “Bruce’s international experience will also support potential European expansion.”

Casely, who has held executive and management roles with Bank of Scotland, Ernst & Young, Rothschild and Scottish & Newcastle, oversaw the flotation of DGS on London’s Alternative Investment Market in February.

He stepped down from the Colorado-based company in October and the role has now been filled by Sandra Rodger, the former head of accounting firm Grant Thornton’s Edinburgh office.
