Ocado names new CFO
Ocado has named Mat Ankers as its new chief financial officer.
In his new position, Ankers will oversee finance, operations, IT and Insights at Ocado Retail, bringing a wealth of strategic and financial experience from his time at retailers across Europe.
Ankers joins Ocado from Pepco Group, where he held the position of Interim CFO since April last year. He has been with the parent company of Poundland and Dealz, Pepco Group, since December 2015, holding a raft of positions including group financial controller from December 2015 to August 2017 and finance director from August 2017-March 2019.
In March 2019, he was appointed transformational director at Poundland & Dealz, a position he held for over a year, before being promoted to group strategy and investor relations at Pepco Group in January last year.
Prior to the Pepco Group, Ankers held the position of head of corporate planning at fashion house French Connection, from February 2014 to December 2015.
In a statement posted on social media, the online-only grocer said it is “delighted” to welcome Ankers to the company.
Ankers will be joining Ocado in autumn.
