Dutton starts work as Punch Taverns FD

UK's leading pub operator's new FD begins work today, as previous finance chief calls time

Phil Dutton has begun his role as Punch Taverns’ FD.

He joined the FTSE 100
company
as an executive director in September, but departing FD Robert McDonald
officially stepped down today after staying on to ensure an orderly handover.

Dutton was formerly FD of Matalan plc from 2002 to 2007. Before that he held
a number of senior finance positions at Asda, between 1990 and 2002.

Between 1985 and 1990, ICEAW-qualified Dutton was an audit manager with
PriceWaterhouseCoopers. From 1982 to 1985 he worked for Pannell
Kerr Forster.

Punch Taverns chief exec Giles Thorley said of his appointment: ‘We couldn’t
wish for a better successor in Phil Dutton. He has had time to get to know our
business and brings with him exceptional financial experience, together with a
considerable pedigree with some of the UK’s leading retailers, which will be
invaluable to Punch’s future development.’
