Shoe Zone appoints new finance director

Value footwear retailer Shoe Zone has appointed Jonathan Fearn as finance director.

Fearn previously worked with LloydsPharmacy owner Celesio where he held a number of senior roles over a 14 year period including head of region at LloydsPharmacy with responsibility for the retail operations of 235 stores.

His most recent role was UK integration lead for Celesio where he oversaw the integration of two UK based businesses acquired from United Drug Group.

Anthony Smith, executive chairman of Shoe Zone, said: “I am pleased that Jonathan has agreed to join Shoe Zone as our new Finance Director. His financial and leadership experience from his multiple roles at LloydsPharmacy over the last 14 years ensure he is well placed to run the finance function at Shoe Zone.”

The move follows the promotion of previous finance director Nick Davis to the role of chief executive earlier this summer. The company said Davis work closely with Fearn to ensure a smooth handover.
