Ann Summers chief financial officer John Boyle is set to exit the business. He retires after 11 years at the lingerie and sex toy retailer, and will be succeeded by Kristina Moln-Page.


New finance director Kristina Moln-Page joined Ann Summers in 2022

Moln-Page has been promoted to the role of finance director, after joining Ann Summers in 2022, and is expected to take on her new role from July 1, 2024.

She will take on responsibility for the finance and business risk functions at the sex toy retailer and will report directly to chief executive Maria Hollins.

Moln-Page takes on the role with vast retail experience, having started her career at Debenhams before spending ten years at fashion giant Asos, where she held several managerial roles within finance for the business.

Boyle is set to remain on the board as a non-executive director in “an advisory capacity” after his retirement. Ann Summers confirmed he will “continue to work with the Gold family, as he has for over 11 years.”
