ScS has named Mark Fleetwood as its new chief financial officer, who will take up the role from outgoing CFO Chris Muir later this year.

Former End Clothing finance boss Fleetwood will be joining the board of the furniture and flooring retailer on 4 September. 

Fleetwood was CFO of fashion retailer End for five years, prior to that he was corporate finance director at the landlord Grainger Plc. A chartered accountant, Fleetwood has also held senior roles at N+1 Singer and Brewer Dolphin since qualifying with KPMG in 2005.

Muir announced he was stepping down in December last year and will remain available and involved in the business until late 2023 as an executive director. 

ScS chief executive Steve Carson said: ”Mark is a fantastic addition to our business and brings significant digital, retail and Plc experience to the board. He has a growth mindset and a strong track record of delivery, which will support us as we continue to progress our strategy.

“Mark will play a key part in the continued development of our growth plans and ambitions for the future, and we look forward to welcoming him. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris for his exceptional contribution to ScS in his seven years with the business. He is staying with us to oversee results and ensure an orderly transition. We will miss him when he leaves and we all wish him well for the future.”

Fleetwood said: “I have been impressed by the team at ScS and their desire to move the business forward. I’m very much looking forward to getting to know the group and its people, and to working with Steve, the wider team and the board, to help develop and deliver the strategy, and to continue to build value for stakeholders.”
