The CFO of Unbound Group plc is to step down.

Dan Lampard joined Hotter Shoes, a tech-enabled eCommerce platform headquartered in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, in August 2021.

He migrated to the CFO position of parent company Unbound when it listed on the London Stock Exchange in February.

Lampard will leave the business at the end of the month to ‘take up the position of CFO with another business’.

Gavin Manson, currently a non-executive director of Unbound, will take over as CFO from that date while a search for a replacement is launched.

Manson has been a director of Hotter Shoes, Unbound Group’s main trading business, since 2017 and was instrumental in developing the company’s growth strategy. 

He will step down as chair of the audit and risk committee, with Kate Rock appointed in that role on an interim basis.

“The board thanks Dan for his contribution to the group through the AIM listing process and beyond, and we wish him well in his new role,” said chairman Neil Johnson. 

“We are delighted that Gavin has agreed to reassume an executive role as chief financial officer. With his extensive and highly relevant public markets experience, and his deep knowledge of the business, he is ideally placed to support our chief executive officer Ian Watson in delivering Unbound Group’s strategy.”

Unbound’s multi-brand retail platform supports the active lifestyles of the 55+ demographic with a range of products and services. It is moving into the apparel and wellness markets.
