Snow+Rock has hired The White Company finance boss Hamish Mansbridge as its new chief financial officer.

Mansbridge spent nine years at The White Company where he was finance director and helped grow sales from £20m to £100m over that period.

Prior to his time at The White Company, Mansbridge worked at Reuters and PWC.

Mansbridge said: “Snow+Rock is a brand that I have admired as a customer for many years and is an icon of the high street. Coupled with Cycle Surgery and Runners Need, I’m joining at an exciting time in the development of the business with the backdrop of the Olympic Games providing a real boost to the cycling and running markets as the business continues its development into a multichannel retailer.

Snow+Rock chief executive Dion Taylor said: “We are delighted that Hamish has chosen to join us. With his wealth of retail, operational and finance experience with The White Company, we believe he will play a significant role as we continue to develop and grow our business and build on our successes to date. He shares our passion for the sectors in which we operate.”
