PizzaExpress seeks new finance topping

PizzaExpress is on the hunt for a new finance chief after Glen Tomlinson today announced his intention to leave the company early next year.

Chartered accountant Tomlinson has been group finance director of the British pizza restaurant chain since 1990 and is planning to return to Australia.

A spokesman for the company said that he was now helping its nominations committee look for a replacement.

Whoever is appointed is expected to start early in 2002. Tomlinson will leave the company after a short period of overlap.

Tomlinson, who trained with Peat Marwick Mitchell, has overseen the expansion of the chain, which also owns Cafe Pasta, both in the UK and in overseas locations such as Dubai and Tokyo.

The chain now has more than 250 restaurants in the UK. Its 2000 results showed profit before tax of £19.5m on a turnover of £89.5m.
