Hamleys’ CFO to step down

Long-serving chief financial officer at toy retailer Hamleys Alisdair Dunn, has announced his departure from the company.

Dunn will leave to pursue a portfolio career in the retail sector after having served Hamleys since 2005.

Having previously served as director of finance at B&Q, Dunn was credited with helping the firm endure through the recession which toppled its owner Baugur, overseeing its sale to both Ludendo and its current owner C.banner in 2015 as well as building up the company’s international portfolio.

It has been reported that Alex Jablonowski will step into the role following DUnn’s departure, with the transition process already underway.
