Kingfisher names new FD
Duncan Tatton-Brown, currently finance director of B&Q, is to succeed Helen Weir as group finance director of Kingfisher.
Tatton-Brown, who joined B&Q in 2001, will join the bard on 2 February 2004. Prior to joining B&Q, he held senior finance positions at Virgin and the Burton Group.
Weir announced today she would be standing down to seek a more operational role.
Kingfisher chairman Sir Francis Mackay said: ?I understand but am saddened by Helen Weir’s decision to leave the Group. She has been a highly effective finance director and board member and has made a great contribution, both in her time at B&Q and, particularly, over the last 3 years during the re-structuring of Kingfisher.
‘I thank Helen on behalf of the Board and wish her well. Duncan has proved himself an outstanding Finance Director at B&Q and I look forward to his joining the board’.
