Findus CFO to exit

Findus Group CFO Stephen Leadbeater has signalled his intention to leave the business.

Leadbeater's exit is the second senior management resignation in two months. Chief executive Chris Britton revealed his plan to leave the company in October.

A source familiar with the situation told just-food the timing of Leadbeater's departure will depend on how quickly a successor can be appointed.

"The timing of his actual departure will depend on when a successor can be found, he will remain with the group until a replacement is in place," the spokesperson said.

just-food understands Leadbeater has decide to leave the company after ten years having led a process of financial restructuring that leaves Findus "very comfortably capitalised".

Last month, Findus reached an agreement to restructure its capital structure in a debt-for-equity swap that saw the frozen food maker significantly deleverage its balance sheet.
