2 Sisters Food Group has appointed Stephen Leadbeater as its new chief financial officer, following Steve Henderson’s decision to take early retirement.

Leadbeater, who joins with immediate effect, will bring over 25 years’ experience to the role.

Most recently, he was chief financial officer at the Findus Group for 10 years, where he was credited as being instrumental in the delivery of a number of major financial and corporate projects.

Before this, he held roles at Young’s Seafood and its precursor Ross Group, United Biscuits and Associated British Foods.

2 Sisters ceo Ranjit Boparan said he was delighted to have Leadbeater on board.

‘Great track record’

“He has a great track record in the industry, has been successful in tackling some major transformational projects and I am sure he will carry on Steve Henderson’s good work,” he added.

Henderson had been chief financial officer with Northern Foods, before taking up the role with 2 Sisters following its acquisition of the firm in 2011.

He will remain with the business until the autumn to ensure a smooth transition and hand-over period.

Boparan said: “We are sad that he has chosen to retire, but respect his decision and thank him for his constant diligence and pragmatism. We wish him a happy and healthy retirement – it is very much deserved.”

Meanwhile, 2 Sisters reported strong progress in its third financial quarter.
