Ex-FD Worthington leaves Quintain

LONG-SERVING Quintain finance chief Rebecca Worthington has resigned from the board with immediate effect.

Worthington, who served as finance director for 11 years and was most recently deputy chief executive, will leave the company on 31 October after a total of 14 years at the property business.

She took on the deputy role in May, when chief executive and founder Adrian Wyatt stepped down. Wyatt was replaced by Max James, who was made an executive director last year.

Worthington leaves to establish a new business. Her responsibilities pass to finance director Richard Stearn and Greenwich Peninsula development director Anthony Gill.

Worthington said: “With the new management team firmly established at Quintain and a talented operational board driving progress at Wembley and Greenwich, the time is now right to realise my long-held ambition of running my own business.”

William Rucker, chairman of Quintain, said: “Over the past 14 years, Becky has made an outstanding contribution to Quintain, spending 11 years in the role of finance director and, more recently, as deputy chief executive.

“Becky has demonstrated significant expertise helping Quintain achieve a stable financial footing in the challenging market conditions of recent years. The company has benefited immensely from her time here and the whole team wishes her great success in her new venture.”

Quintain’s shares were up 0.50p, to 53.00p, in this morning’s trading.
