A very marked man...

Finweek English Edition - - COMPANIES&MARKETS -

WHAT IS IT with VER­I­MARK and fi­nan­cial direc­tors? We note that Siegfried Preller has again as­sumed the role as tem­po­rary FD at the spe­cial­ist re­tailer fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of Jeremy Thomas, who served less than 18 months in the key role. Preller, as Finweek re­calls, stepped in as tem­po­rary FD a few years back in be­tween the res­ig­na­tion of Daniel Re­ichen­berg and the ap­point­ment of Mike War­wick.

While it’s prob­a­bly re­as­sur­ing to have Preller (who has served Ver­i­mark as a fi­nan­cial man­ager for a num­ber of years) in the FD’s chair, we have to won­der why Ver­i­mark – which has made a seem­ingly strong turn­around op­er­a­tionally – can’t at­tract or re­tain a chief num­ber-cruncher.
