GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Go Outdoors appoints new CFO

Outdoor equipment and clothing retailer Go Outdoors has appointed Claire Webb as its chief financial officer.

Webb will join Go Outdoors from Maplin where she led the retailer’s finance, legal and HR functions, and oversaw refinancings and the sale of the business to Rutland Partners.

She will succeed current chief financial officer Chris Morgan and will join the board of Go Outdoors in early 2015.

Go Outdoors chief executive Chris Matthews said: “I am looking forward to Claire joining the board and supporting the wider team as we enter Go Outdoors’ next stage of development. She has a strong track record and will be a very welcome addition to the team.

“On behalf of the board I would like to extend our deep thanks to Chris Morgan. He has been instrumental in helping the company deliver record sales and achieving financial stability and he led the refinancing of the company last year. I wish him every success in the future.”

Last week, Go Outdoors announced record sales of £174 million for the year 2013/14 and EBITDA of £10.2 million, up from £9.4 million in the previous year.
