Fat Face CEO to exit

Chief executive of Fat Face, Anthony Thompson, is stepping down from his role in January 2019.

Thompson joined the retailer in 2010. Before that he was managing director at George at Asda from 2007 to 2010 and held several senior roles at Marks & Spencer.

Thompson said: “Fat Face celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and is in good shape. It feels the right time for the business and for me personally to move on to new challenges and the next stage of my career.

“I shall miss Fat Face and would like to thank all the team who have been so supportive. I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to lead such a great business.”

Fat Face chairman Lord Rose added: “I would like to thank Anthony on behalf of the board for his significant contribution to the company over the past nine years and wish him every success with his future plans. We expect to announce his successor shortly to enable a smooth transition to allow us to build on progress over the last few years as we enter a new period of growth and investment.”
