THE FD of chocolatier Thorntons is stepping down.
Mark Robson will leave the company in March 2012 to take up a role with a private equity firm.
He joined Thorntons in 2009 after serving as Somerfields FD. The chartered accountant had also served as FD at pub and bar chain SFI Holdings, Claire’s Accessories and Alldays.
Jonathan Hart, Thorntons chief executive, said: “Mark has played an important role over the past two years in improving our business and laying the foundations for our long-term transformational strategy. A search for his successor has been initiated.”
Thorntons’ share price was static in this morning’s trading, at 41.5p.
