Shop Direct has appointed Derek Harding as its new group finance director.
Harding will join the firm later this year from engineering group Senior where he has held the position of finance director since 2013.
Prior to joining Senior, Harding worked at Wolseley for 11 years, most recently as finance director of Wolseley UK.
At Shop Direct, he will report directly to group CEO, Alex Baldock, assuming the position currently held by Greg Pateras, who is leaving the business after 10 years to explore new opportunities.
Baldock said: “Derek is a world class finance director of large, complex businesses. Most recently, at Senior, he has played an important role in developing and delivering the growth strategy for a technology-focused business. At Wolseley, he was integral to the multichannel distributor’s organic and acquisitive growth.”
