Brakes chief financial officer to replace Ian Bull at Greene King

Greene King‘s finance director, Ian Bull, is to leave the company on 30 June 2011 as he takes up a post as chief financial officer at Ladbrokes.

Bull, who joined Greene King in 2006, will be replaced by Matthew Fearn (aged 46) who will join as a member of the board on 1 September 2011.

Fearn is currently chief executive of Brakes Group, where he has worked since 2007 and was previously finance director at De Vere Group following several years at Whitbread.

Greene King chief executive Rooney Anand said: "Since joining us five years ago, Ian has played a key part in Greene King's ongoing success and development against a demanding backdrop for the industry. Ian will be staying until the announcement of our results in June, after which he will leave with our sincere thanks and very best wishes for the future.

"At the same time, I am very pleased that Matthew Fearn is joining the team. Matthew has extensive experience in consumer-facing leisure and food businesses and we look forward to him helping us continue to drive our exciting growth and development plans."
