New finance director for easyJet
UK budget airline easyJet has appointed 43-year-old Jeff Carr as its new finance director as of January 2005, replacing Chris Walton.
The corporate gave no reason for Walton's departure, but did thank him profusely for the work he has done building the airline since 1999, when he became CFO, from a small private company to a mid-sized PLC.
easyJet says it conducted an extensive search for its new CFO, eventually opting for Carr, currently director of finance, performance and planning for Associated British Foods.
He has previously held senior financial positions with Unilever, Grand Metropolitan and Reckitt Benckiser.
