M&S confirms start date for new financial boss

Marks & Spencer’s new chief financial officer Helen Weir will start on April 1, the retailer has confirmed.

M&S announced Weir’s appointment on November 17. She was until recently chief financial officer at the John Lewis Partnership, which is in the process of recruiting a replacement.

She replaces Paul Friston, chief executive Marc Bolland’s executive assistant and previously the director of group financial control, who has been interim chief financial officer since Alan Stewart left to join Tesco in September.
