SuperGroup's CFO is bankrupt and steps down

SuperGroup's CFO is bankrupt and steps down

SuperDry's parent holding SuperGroup has lost its CFO, Shaun Wills, who has been declared bankrupt on 10 February and he has stepped down at SuperGroup as a result.

Personal case

Former Dunelm's CEO and Halfords's CFO Nick Wharton will immediately take Wills's place, albeit temporarily for the time being.

 

The CFO's departure comes a day after the announcement of his personal bankruptcy. SuperDry's parent company emphasized that was a personal matter and it will refrain from commenting any further. It also added it will have no effect on the company's financial situation.

 

COO Susanne Given also departed the company two weeks ago, mere months after SuperGroup had appointed Euan Sutherland its new CEO.
