SAUSAGE skin maker Devro has begun the search for a new finance director after it said Simon Webb would step down next year.
Webb, the former chief financial officer of bank note maker De La Rue, has agreed with the board that he will step down by the end of November 2016 at latest.
He will remain in the role until a successor has been appointed and will oversee the completion and sign off of 2015 statutory accounts before his departure.
Chairman Gerard Hoetmer said “Simon has been with Devro since January 2011, during which time he has made a significant contribution to the business, for which the board is most grateful.
“With the major restructuring of our manufacturing operations now reaching completion, with excellent banking facilities in place, and with a strong finance team established across the group, Simon has agreed that this is an appropriate time to move on to new challenges”.
