Booth out at Pilkington's Tiles Group
David Booth, finance director and secretary of Pilkington's Tiles Group, is to retire from his executive role on 3 September this year.
Booth is to remain on the board as a non-executive director at the ceramic and floor tiles manufacturer. He said the decision was put down to a number of factors including distance, and that the ‘time was right’ for his departure.
Pilkington’s Tiles Group last set of results saw turnover fall and the group post a post tax loss of Pounds 700,000, as opposed to a profit of Pounds 4.2m the previous year.
The group announced it had appointed Mark Hesketh ACA as group finance director from the beginning of next month. Hesketh moves from Greenway Holdings where he started in 1990 as FD later assuming the role of group deputy chief executive and FD. Previously, Hesketh worked at accountants Touch Ross in Manchester.
