N Brown has revealed that chief financial officer Dean Moore will step down from his role after 11 years to pursue other interests.

He will be replaced by Craig Lovelace, who is at present chief financial officer of General Healthcare Group, trading as BMI Healthcare. He will join N Brown in the new financial year.

“Dean has given excellent and long service to N Brown,” said chief executive Angela Spindler. “In particular, he has been a great support to me over the last 18 months, providing important continuity through the leadership transition.

“The business change programme is progressing well, our performance is in line with our expectations and now feels like a good time, for all concerned, to make this important change.

“Dean has made a significant contribution to the past and future success of the business and I would personally like to acknowledge and thank him.”
