• Former New Look finance boss Mike Iddon to join Petst at Home next month
  • Interim CFO Adams to depart at the end of November
  • Iddon previously held a number of roles at Tesco

Pets at Home has hired former New Look chief financial officer Mike Iddon, who will join the company next month, replacing interim boss Mark Adams.

Iddon, who left New Look in March, will sit on the executive board of the pet food and accessories retailer and report directly to chief executive Ian Kellett.

He will take the helm from Adams, who will leave the retailer in November.

Adams has held the position since April, when the retailer reversed its decision to hire Graeme Jenkins as its chief financial officer following an investigation into his former employer Target.

Kellett said: “Mike brings a huge wealth of financial expertise, all gained within established retail and consumer businesses, which makes him a great addition to the team.

“I also want to thank Mark Adams for supporting us through the first half of the financial year in his position as interim CFO and we wish him well in his next role.”

Iddon, who prior to New Look held various financial roles at retailers including Tesco and Kingfisher, said: ”With so many growth opportunities, not just within retailing but also in the many services that support customers and their pets, this is a really exciting time for me to join the group.”
