Former HBoS group finance director Mike Ellis has joined struggling retailer WHSmith as non-executive and chairman of its audit committee.
The appointment comes just one month after Alan Stewart took over WHSmith’s FD role from John Warren.
Ellis spent 14 years of his career at Halifax, culminating in his appointment as COO in 1999.
‘With his extensive financial experience, including retail banking, Mike will be a valuable member of the board as we implement our turnaround plans for the group,’ said WHSmith chairman Robert Walker.
