Wharton wins Halfords joint MD role

Halfords FD
has been named as one of the bicycle giant’s joint MDs today.

Wharton will step up to the role in conjunction with trading director Paul
McClenaghan on 29 February after chief exec Ian McLeod resigned from the
company to take a role with another company.

The cycle company said: ‘Halfords announces that Ian McLeod, chief executive,
has resigned from the company having accepted a leadership position with a large
retailer based in Australia. The board has agreed that Ian McLeod can take up
his new position and step down from the board on 29 February 2008.’

Halfords said it had already kicked off the search for a permanent chief exec
‘from a range of internal and external candidates and a search consultancy has
been appointed to assist with this process.’
