Car dealer group Caffyns has lined up former HR Owen finance director Michael Warren to replace its own finance director Mark Harrison this summer.
Harrison is due to retire on July 31. Warren, who spent 21 years with the London-based luxury car retail group HR Owen until leaving in April 2015, will join Caffyns on May 31.
Richard Wright, Caffyns chairman, said: "I am delighted to welcome Michael Warren to the company. He brings with him a wealth of relevant knowledge and his experience of having been finance director of a listed company operating motor dealerships will be of great benefit to Caffyns.
"We look forward to welcoming Michael and believe that he will make a valuable contribution to the continued development of the company.
I and the rest of the Caffyns board would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark Harrison for his outstanding contribution as finance director of the company over the last 16 years and wish him well in his retirement."
HR Owen was a publicly listed company until its acquisition in 2014 by Berjaya Holdings, which delisted the company.
