Office drafts in former Jane Norman managing director

Footwear retailer Office has appointed former Jane Norman managing director Ian Findlay as finance director.

Findlay, who left the young woman’s chain in June, will join the footwear retailer in the coming weeks, according to The Independent.

The former Jane Norman head also held the role of finance director at Jane Norman before he was promoted to managing director in February following the retirement of chief executive of 16 years Saj Shah.

Private equity firm Silverfleet Capital bought Office from West Coast Capital, the investment vehicle of Sir Tom Hunter, in December. The retail entrepreneur bought Office for £16m via his investment firm in 2003.

The company enjoyed a strong performance in the year to January 31, when EBITDA rose to £18.5m, up from £10.5m the year before.
