Moss Bros has announced the appointment of Bill Adams as its new CFO. Currently interim CFO at Ted Baker, Adams will join the listed menswear retailer in February 2020.

Adams will replace Moss Bros CFO Tony Bennett, who is standing down from the board for personal reasons. Adams and Bennett will complete a handover period.

Before being appointed as interim CFO at Ted Baker, Adams was CEO at Ideal Shopping, a role he was appointed to following a period as CFO. Previously he held a number of senior positions including Finance Director at Argos for three years from 2013 to 2016 and Finance Director at Homebase before that.

Moss Bros CEO Brian Brick commented: "I am delighted to welcome Bill to Moss Bros. Bill has considerable experience across a variety of different retail businesses, and will no doubt bring valuable additional insight to the business.

"We have recently implemented a clear and comprehensive strategy with clarity, unity and focus in place across the business. Bill will join us at a time where we can leverage the Moss Bros brand further into new channels. I believe Bill's experience will enable him to make an immediate contribution to our future.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony on behalf of all at Moss Bros for his considerable contribution and support he has given and wish him well for his future endeavours."

Of his appointment, Adams added: "I am very much looking forward to joining Moss Bros and working with Brian and the team. I believe the brand has a great future and I am excited about being part of the future direction of the Company."

Adams was appointed to the post of interim CFO at Ted Baker after its CFO Charles Anderson left to join Mulberry. Ted Baker subsequently appointed Debenhams CFO Rachel Osborne in September and said at the time she would be joining the company within the next few months.
