Directorate Change


McColl's Retail Group plc ("McColl's" or "the Group"), announces that Robbie Bell has informed the Board of his decision to step down as Chief Financial Officer and from the Board to take up the equivalent role at Holland & Barrett Retail Ltd.


A full search to identify a permanent successor is already underway and a further announcement will be made in due course. Robbie will remain at McColl's in his current role until a replacement has been appointed and a handover has taken place. The exact date of his departure will be announced once confirmed.


Jonathan Miller, Chief Executive, said: "I would like to thank Robbie for his contribution to McColl's during his time here and we wish him well for the future. This is a busy time for McColl's as we continue to respond to increased customer demand and keep the neighbourhood communities we serve supplied with the food, goods and services they need every day."


Robbie Bell said: "It has been a pleasure working at McColl's and I would like to thank Jonathan, the Board and all my colleagues for their support. Whilst it was a difficult decision, I am stepping down to pursue a new opportunity, and I wish McColl's every success in the future."



This announcement is issued in accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.11 (2).
