Cash-and-carry company Booker has announced the resignation of finance director John Kitson. He is the third director to leave the board since the appointment of Stuart Rose as chief executive in September. Kitson, who earned £166,000 last year, is thought to be negotiating a pay-off equivalent to one year’s salary. Steven Glew will take up the reigns as Booker’s finance director in March. He is moving from Tesco Ireland.
