BRITISH kitchen supplier Howden Joinery Group has appointed chief financial officer Mark Robson as deputy chief executive following a review of its organisation, structure and capabilities.
Robson, who has served as the company's CFO since 2005, becomes deputy chief executive with immediate effect and will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the business in addition to retaining his current role as CFO.
He will be supported by Rob Fenwick, who spearheaded the reconstruction of Howdens supply operations from 2005 and continues to lead the supply division, and Andy Witts, a co-founder of the business and leader of the depot management team.
Theresa Keating, currently group financial controller, will take on additional responsibilities in the finance area and is appointed finance director, which is not a board position.
"Mark has been at Howdens for just over nine years as CFO and has a deep understanding of the business both operationally and financially," said chief executive Matthew Ingle.
Ingle will continue as chief executive and will focus on the strategic development of the business, the company said in a statement.
Robson previously served as group finance director at Delta, having held a number of senior financial positions with ICI between 1985 and 1998. He is a chartered accountant and qualified with Price Waterhouse.
