Albin de Beauregard, Kindred Group’s CFO, is to step down from his role and leave the company during the first quarter of 2020.

The decision, which has triggered a search for a new permanent CFO, was taken after De Beauregard had spent eight years with the company including four as CFO.

Graham Stretch, former CFO at Kindred, is to provide support during the transition period and assist in the recruitment process.

Henrik Tjärnström, Kindred Group CEO, said: “It is with regret that Albin has informed me of his intention to step down from his role as CFO to pursue new challenges outside of the industry.

“Albin leaves Kindred in a strong position for future growth, and a professional team that provides a solid platform to support the group’s continued development.”
