Ocado is set to appoint former Fitness First financial director Duncan Tatton-Brown as its new finance director.
The online grocer is expected to announce the appointment of Tatton-Brown at its interim results tomorrow, the Financial Times reports.
Tatton-Brown replaces Andrew Bracey who departed in April after revealing in January that he was leaving to join recruiters Michael Page in January.
Richard Exact has been performing the role on an interim basis since Bracey’s departure.
Tatton-Brown left Fitness First in February. Prior to working for the health club group he was finance director at Kingfisher.
He joins the etailer as it begins testing on its second distribution centre in Dordon, Warwickshire, an investment which is expected to broaden Ocado’s customer base considerably.
Ocado is also expected to announce its will build a new warehouse dedicated to non-food.
The etailer is also under scrutiny over a tie-up with another retailer on non-food products. Ocado reportedly held talks with Boots over potentially stocking its health and beauty products while speculation mounts that John Lewis, which owns Ocado’s strategic partner Waitrose, will provide non-food products for Waitrose.
