Halfords CFO to step down and join EasyJet
Car parts and cycle retailer Halfords has announced that its chief financial officer Andrew Findlay is leaving the business to take up the same role at EasyJet.
With the process to appoint a successor already underway, Halfords said Findlay will remain in post until the end of October.
Halfords chairman Dennis Millard said: "We would like to thank Andrew for his outstanding contribution to the business. He has played an important role in the recent Halfords story. He will be leaving Halfords in a healthy financial position and with an award-winning finance team. Halfords is a strong business with a clear strategy, is trading well and will continue to build on its leading positions in a number of large and attractive retail and service markets."
Findlay added: "I am sad to be leaving, but the opportunity to join EasyJet was too attractive to turn down. As a result, the time has come to let someone else take on the role of chief financial officer in this fantastic business. I wish Halfords and the team every success."
Halfords said trading for the final quarter of the 2015 financial year is in line with management's expectations. The retailer will issue a trading update for the period and the full year's results on 5 June.
