Richardson quit because he had been ‘unable to establish a strong working
relationship with the executive team’.
His resignation follows intense irritation with the company from investors
and analysts, who have been frustrated with the relutance of the group’s founder
and chairman Mike Ashley to engage with the City and appoint financial advisers.
The stock has fallen 31.7% to 205p a share since it listed. The company is
now worth £1.47bn compared with £2.2bn when it listed in February.
The departure of Richardson, a
veteran, is believed to have come about because he could no longer tolerate
Ashley’s refusal to engage properly with investors and follow City protocol.
