Unbound Group chief financial officer to step down
Hotter Shoes owner Unbound Group has announced that its chief financial officer Dan Leppard is to step down next month to take up the same position with another business.
Following his departure on 1 October, he will be succeeded in the role by Gavin Manson who is currently a non-executive director of the company.
Manson has been a director of Hotter Shoes, Unbound Group’s main trading business, since 2017 and was instrumental in developing the company’s growth strategy. His 30-year career leading digital and business transformation in the consumer sector has included senior roles at Electra Private Equity, Thomas Cook Group, Premier Farnell and Merck Services.
Neil Johnson, chairman of Unbound Group, said: “The board thanks Dan for his contribution to the group through the AIM listing process and beyond, and we wish him well in his new role. We are delighted that Gavin has agreed to reassume an executive role as chief financial officer. With his extensive and highly relevant public markets experience, and his deep knowledge of the business, he is ideally placed to support our chief executive officer Ian Watson in delivering Unbound Group’s strategy.”
