Sports Direct’s Acting Chief Financial Officer, Matt Pearson, is to leave the company.
Pearson is stepping down from his role to take on a job with another company.
Mike Ashley, Founder and Chief Executive, said: “Matt has been a valued member of the Sports Direct family for over nine years and he will be a loss to the company. I wish him all the best for the future and would like to thank him for his time at Sports Direct.”
Matt will remain with Sports Direct as Acting Chief Financial Officer until 31 December 2016.
Sports Direct has appointed Herbert Monteith, a long-standing member of the finance team, as Interim Head of Finance, to assist with a smooth handover of responsibilities.
Herbert will continue to work closely with Karen Byers, Global Head of Operations, and Sean Nevitt, Global Head of Commercial.
