Imperial has announced a new shareholder structure and the appointment of James Hunt as new finance director.
Hunt brings over 20 years’ experience in the corporate finance industry gained through senior positions at both Allied Irish Bank and HSBC. At the same time John Newcomb, who joined Imperial as commercial director in June 2004, is to become a significant shareholder in the company.
Commenting on Hunt’s appointment, Mo B’ham, Imperial’s managing and design director, said: “This strategic decision enables Imperial to reap the rewards of a highly experienced management team and board of directors and it is our intention that James will also become a shareholder together with John Newcomb.”
The company also says that it will be introducing a new brand in the new year to sit alongside its existing portfolio of Arc42, Ready Steady Cook, Bugatti, Soehnle and Wesco.
