JD Sports CFO Greenhalgh to step down
JD Sports has announced the departure of its chief financial officer next year.
Greenhalgh, who has been with the high street staple for almost two decades and in his current role since 2018, said his decision was one he had been “considering for some time.”
His exit will be the second by one of JD Sports’ senior leadership team, following the abrupt departure of veteran executive chair Peter Cowgill in May. After decades at the helm of the London-listed firm, Cowgill stepped down following several brushes with the competition watchdog.
The firm will now start hunting for a replacement for Neil Greenhalgh, with new chair Andy Higginson leading the search.
Greenhalgh is expected to depart after spring 2023 and said he intends to help new leadership “settle into their roles”, as well as enabling a “smooth transition to a new CFO.”
