French Connection has revealed that its group finance director Adam Castleton is stepping down from the fashion retailer.

Castleton will take up the position of group chief financial officer at LSL Property Services, but his departure date has not yet been confirmed by the retailer.

French Connection said the search for his replacement is already under way.

Castleton joined the retailer in May 2013 from telecommunications firm O2, where he served as finance director of its business division. He also served as acting chief financial officer of O2 UK, following previous roles at eBay, Polo Ralph Lauren and The Walt Disney Company.
