Foxtons finance chief to join gaming operator Rank Group

Dec 21 (Reuters) - Foxtons (FOXT.L) Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Richard Harris will exit the company to take up a similar position at casino and gaming operator Rank Group (RNK.L), the London-based real estate agent said on Tuesday.

Harris, who has been Foxtons' finance chief since June 2019 and has helped steer the FTSE small-cap (.FTSC) company during the COVID-19 pandemic, will join Rank Group as CFO from May next year.

Harris has served as group financial controller at tech firm Laird and prior to that spent 11 years at Marks and Spencer (MKS.L) in several senior finance roles.

Foxtons also named its finance director, Chris Hough, as its CFO. Before Foxtons, Hough was a director at audit firm Deloitte, where he spent over a decade.
