(Alliance News) - Howden Joinery Group PLC on Friday said Mark Robson will step down from his role as deputy chief executive & chief financial officer on December 26.

Robson joined the FTSE 250-listed kitchens and joinery products supplier as CFO in April 2005 and was made deputy CEO in May 2014 in addition to the finance role.

Paul Hayes will succeed Robson as CFO, joining on November 2, Howden said. Hayes was previously CFO of Consort Medical PLC, a medical devices manufacturer which was acquired by Recipharm Holdings Ltd for GBP505 million in February.

Hayes has extensive experience in senior finance roles at a number of UK and US listed companies including photography & video products maker Vitec Group PLC, Signet Jewelers and defence and medical technology firm Smiths Group PLC, Howdens said.

Commenting on the board changes, Chief Executive Andrew Livingstone said: "Mark has made a very significant contribution to the success of Howdens over the last 15 years, and I am especially grateful for his advice, guidance and support since I first joined the business in 2018. Paul Hayes comes to the business with a first class record of achievement in consumer and vertically integrated businesses and will, I'm sure, be a great fit with Howdens. I very much look forward to working with him."

Shares in Howden Joinery were trading marginally lower at 651.80 pence each on Friday morning in London.
