TalkTalk names fourth finance chief in 4 years
TalkTalk will have its fourth chief financial officer in four years, after it poached Kate Ferry from Dixons Carphone to take over the role in the autumn. It is the latest move in a shake-up at the top of TalkTalk, after Sir Charles Dunstone returned to the business he had founded within Carphone Warehouse. Mr Torrens joined TalkTalk from broker ICAP in 2014 and was in charge of the finances following the cyber attack. Mr Makin, a former Umbro executive, had been drafted in to replace Amy Stirling, who had spent seven years as chief financial officer and 13 within Carphone Warehouse when she departed in 2013. Sir Charles said: "As we continue our journey under the new leadership team and with a refocused direction, Kate brings a wealth of experience to the role. Her skills will work really well at TalkTalk and we're looking forward to working with her as we focus on delivering our new and exciting plan for the business."
