The FTSE 250-listed bicycles to car parts retailer said Woodhouse, finance director at John Lewis Partnership-owned supermarket Waitrose since 2015, will start as its chief financial officer (CFO) on November 1.
Graham Stapleton, Halfords’ chief executive, commented: "I am delighted that Loraine will be joining Halfords as CFO and look forward to working with her. She has extensive financial leadership within service-based retail and will be a great addition to the senior team.”
Woodhouse was previously CFO of fashion retailer Hobbs, finance director of Capital Shopping Centres Limited (now Intu PLC (LON:INTU)) and finance director of Whitbread plc’s (LON:WTB) Costa Coffee Limited. As previously announced, Mason will depart on July 31.
Halfords, which warned on profit back in May, said it will publish a 20-week trading statement on 4 September 2018 followed by a Capital Markets Day on 27 September 2018.
