Card Factory names Kris Lee as chief financial officer

Greeting cards retailer Card Factory has appointed Kris Lee as its new chief financial officer.

Lee will join the business from Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group where he has held the positon of group chief financial officer for the past five years.

Prior to that, he held senior finance roles at Brighthouse Retail, General Healthcare Group and Caudwell Group. He also spent 14 years at Allsports and the John David Group, which is now JD Sports.

Lee will succeed Darren Bryant who announced earlier this year that he is to retire from the role after eight years with the business. Lee’s appointment will take effect at a date to be agreed once his departure date from Edinburgh Woollen Mill has been finalised.

Karen Hubbard chief executive of Card Factory, said: “In Kris, we have found an outstanding successor to Darren who has made a significant contribution to the sustained growth of Card Factory over the past eight years and leaves with our best wishes for the future.

“Kris has significant financial and commercial experience within retail and a clear passion for the sector. He also has the energy, drive and entrepreneurial mindset that will fit well with the Card Factory culture and will be invaluable as we move forward with our growth strategy.”
