Asda finance chief to be succeeded by Morrisons’ CFO
Asda has appointed Michael Gleeson as its new chief financial officer following John Fallon’s decision to leave the business and take on new challenges.
Gleeson will join the supermarket next year from Morrisons where he has been chief financial officer since February 2020. He joined Morrisons in 2014 as group financial controller and since then has also held the roles of supermarkets financial director and trading director of ambient, frozen, dairy, fuel and services.
Prior to Morrisons, Gleeson worked in a number of senior finance roles at Tesco including group financial planning and analysis director and chief financial officer of Tesco.com.
Mohsin Issa, co-owner of Asda, said: “I am delighted that we are able to announce that Michael Gleeson will be joining us as our new chief financial officer. Michael brings a wealth of experience to this role, and we are looking forward to welcoming him next year. In the meantime, John will take on some specific projects and Steven Nuttall will take on some extra accountability in the day-to-day running of our Finance function and this will help ensure there is a smooth transition.”
