JD Sports CFO to retire
JD Sports chief financial officer Brian Small is to step down from his role in order to retire.
He will leave the business on 31 October after discussing his proposed retirement with the company’s board for the past few months.
He will be succeeded by Neil Greenhalgh, JD’s group finance director, who joined the business in 2004 and will take up his new role on 1 November.
In a statement JD said that Greenhalgh had been very involved in all aspects of JD's growth and international expansion for the last 14 years.
Peter Cowgill, executive chairman of JD, said: "I would like to thank Brian for his valuable contribution and support over the last 15 years at JD and we wish him well in his retirement. I would also like to welcome Neil to the board of JD. The board is delighted that a planned succession has been achieved. Neil has already made a substantial contribution to JD and his promotion to the board will enable him to contribute still further.''
