Adam Castleton has finally grown tired of looking at French Connection’s balance sheet. The British fashion retailer’s Finance Director is to step down after two years, having accepted an offer at LSL Property Services.
His departure date is yet to be confirmed but a search for his replacement is currently underway.
Castleton joined French Connection in August 2013 from telecommunications firm O2, where he also served as finance director of the business division. He has also served as the acting chief financial officer of O2 UK.
He started his career with Pricewaterhouse Coopers in 1989 and previously spent 25 years working in senior finance roles at international businesses including The Walt Disney Company, eBay, Polo Ralph Lauren and Shopping.com.
The upmarket company has been struggling in recent years and has warned that its next set of financial results will be below par despite ailing attempts to breathe new life into its product lines.
