Brewer Greene King has appointed Richard Smothers as its new chief financial officer, effective from February next year.
Smothers joins from Mothercare, where he has been chief financial officer since March 2015. He replaces Kirk Davis, who will be leaving at the end of January to become chief financial officer of the company’s restaurant business.
Previously, Smothers was director of group finance at Rexam from 2011. He has also spent 14 years in a number of senior finance roles at Tesco, including finance director for UK operations and finance director, Asia.
Greene King ceo Rooney Anad said: “Richard has 20 years of experience at blue chip retail and consumer-focused companies in senior financial roles.
“He is a great addition to the executive team as we seek to become Britain's best pub company and to continue to deliver long-term growth and value to shareholders.”
