FOXTONS chief financial officer Gerard Nieslony is to step down to FD after the company announced it has appointed Hays financial controller Mark Berry as its new CFO.
Berry will join the London estate agency and its board on 7 November 2016, having spent 16 years at the FTSE 250 recruiter.
Nieslony is noted for managing Foxtons through its IPO process. He will step down from the company’s board upon Berry’s arrival.
Foxtons chairman Garry Watts said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark to the board. His broad experience at Hays across finance functions and in corporate development will be invaluable in supporting our growth and further expansion. Since our IPO in 2013 we have opened 20 new branches bringing our network to 62 branches with a pipeline of further openings planned in the years ahead.”
“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Gerard for his significant contribution including the successful transition of Foxtons into public ownership. I am delighted that we will continue to benefit from his experience in his new role.”
