Graham Wickenden joins the company before Moloney leaves in May to ensure a smooth hand over. Wickenden joins from Elementis where he was director of finance and IT at Akcros Chemicals. He has also held senior financial positions at Budgens and Delta. Moloney leaves for what’s being described as “personal reasons” after only 19 months in the job. Last year the company was £11m in the red, but analysts are predicting a reversal of fortunes for the company this year.
