Sports retailer hires new finance director, with over 20 years experience

Lawrence Coppock will be the new finance director at troubled sports retailer
JJB a company announcement has revealed.

Coppock, who is to take on the position later this year, was previously group
finance director at publishing company Wyndeham Press Group and has over 20
years senior finance experience,
Reuters
reported.

Prior to Wyndeham, Coppock was regional managing director at Weir Services
and spent four years at MFI as group finance director. He has also worked as
finance director of Kingfisher subsidiary B&Q for four years.

JJB also announced that Peter Williams, an executive director at the company,
will leave the group at the end of May.

The sports retailer is currently implementing a company voluntary
arrangement, which hopes to see a settlement of claims from various landlords to
pay monthly installments instead of quarterly on approximately 250 of its stores
in order to ease cash flow worries.
