Card and gift retailer Clinton Cards has announced that Commercial Director Barry Hartog is to retire later this year.
After 20 years of service at the company he will step down at the end of May, although his successor is yet to be announced.
Hartog joined the business as Group Finance Director in 1991, holding the position until 2009.
Don Lewin, Chairman of Clinton Cards, said: “Barry Hartog’s contribution to the board and the company during his 20 years with Clinton Cards has been immense and we express our gratitude to him.
“On a personal level, I will be sorry to see Barry leave us but, on behalf of the board, we wish him a very enjoyable and well earned retirement.”
Clinton Cards is currently undergoing a re-branding process, which will result in a new-look store portfolio later this year.
Earlier this month the company issued a profits warning following a slowdown in sales over the Christmas period.
After like-for-like sales in the five weeks to January 2nd 2011 dropped, the board revealed that it expects pre-tax profits for the year to July 31st to be significantly down on market expectations.
