easyJet names new CFO

easyJet has appointed Andrew Findlay, currently CFO of Halfords, as its new CFO.  Andrew will be joining the Board of easyJet plc as a director and CFO by the end of October 2015.

“I and the easyJet team are delighted to welcome Andrew as CFO,” says Carolyn McCall, CEO of easyJet. “He is a proven FTSE 250 CFO with great consumer experience and a strong focus on cost.  He is part of the leadership team at Halfords which has created a much more customer centric and profitable business. Andrew is a great fit for easyJet and I am sure he will add a lot of value to the airline.”

Andrew Findlay commented: “This is an exciting time to be joining Europe’s leading airline. Carolyn has built a fantastic team and with them I look forward to contributing to easyJet’s continued success.”

Findlay has been Halfords Chief Financial Officer since 1 February 2011.  Prior to that Findlay was Director of Finance, Tax and Treasury at Marks & Spencer and before that he held senior finance roles at the London Stock Exchange and at Cable & Wireless, both in the UK and US.

Findlay will succeed Chris Kennedy following the announcement on 8 January 2015 of his intention to become the CFO of ARM Holdings. The terms of Chris Kennedy’s contract with easyJet require that he serve a notice period of up to one year.   A further announcement on Chris’s departure date will be made in due course.
