Boots chief financial officer quits after five years


Boots chief financial officer Michael Snape has quit his role after five years, a year after its US parent Walgreens Boots Alliance halted plans to sell the business.

Snape joined the pharmacy and beauty giant in 2018 from Tesco and will be replaced by existing Boots finance executive Sam Hunter, according to Sky News.

It is reported that Snape resigned last month and it is still unclear whether he has taken on another role elsewhere.
