Board changes


H&T Group plc ("H&T" or the "Group"), the UK's leading pawnbroker, today announces that Richard Withers will be joining the board as chief financial officer of the Group. 


Withers joined the group in 2018 and has fulfilled the role of interim finance director with great ability, leading to his permanent appointment.  Prior to joining the interim role, he was finance director of The Money Shop and has held numerous directorships in other related companies for the past 15 years.  He was also a key member of management in H&T's recent acquisitions process.


It is also with regret that we announce that Martin Pugh will not be continuing as an executive director of H&T.  While he was only with the Group for a short period of time we are grateful for the insights he has provided.  He will resign from the board. 


Both of these changes take effect immediately.
