Wincanton FD steps down

THE GROUP FD of supply chain company Wincanton is leaving to pursue other opportunities, the company said.

Jon Kempster, group finance director, will step down from the board with immediate effect but will remain with Wincanton until a successor is in place or until 31 January 2013.

His departure, after two years with the company, follows a period of structural change in which Wincanton disposed of its mainland European operations and renewed its bank facilities.
