McColls CFO Robbie Bell has announced his departure from the convenience store chain to take up an equivalent role at health and wellbeing retailer Holland and Barrett.
Bell succeeds Greg Watts, who has held the position of CFO at the retailer on an interim basis since last year.
Bell joined McColls last year, having previously held similar positions at Welcome Break and Screwfix. With his resignation from McColls board, the group said it has now commenced a full search to identify a permanent successor and an announcement will be made in due course.
Bell will remain at McColl’s in his current role until a replacement has been appointed and a handover has taken place. The exact date of his departure will be announced once confirmed.
He said: “It has been a pleasure working at McColl’s and I would like to thank Jonathan, the Board and all my colleagues for their support. Whilst it was a difficult decision, I am stepping down to pursue a new opportunity, and I wish McColl’s every success in the future.”
McColls CEO, Jonathan Miller, added: “I would like to thank Robbie for his contribution to McColl’s during his time here and we wish him well for the future.
“This is a busy time for McColl’s as we continue to respond to increased customer demand and keep the neighbourhood communities we serve supplied with the food, goods and services they need every day.”
