Brian Small to step down from JD Sports

Brian Small, Chief Financial Officer, of JD Sports Fashion plc will be stepping down from the Board of the Company at the end of the month, following his decision to retire from this role.

The JD Board has been in discussion with Brian for the past few months regarding his proposed retirement and wishes him all the best for the future.

Brian Small will be replaced by Neil Greenhalgh, the Company’s Group Finance Director, who joined JD in 2004.

Neil will formally be appointed as Chief Financial Officer with effect from November 1. Neil has been deeply involved in all aspects of JD’s growth and international expansion for the last 14 years. Specifically, he has increasingly been fulfilling many aspects of his new role in more recent years in anticipation of an orderly succession.

Peter Cowgill, Executive Chairman of JD, said: “I would like to thank Brian for his valuable contribution and support over the last 15 years at JD and we wish him well in his retirement. I would also like to welcome Neil to the Board of JD. The Board is delighted that a planned succession has been achieved. Neil has already made a substantial contribution to JD and his promotion to the Board will enable him to contribute still further.”
