Rightmove, the leading U.K.-based real estate portal, has appointed Georgina Hudson as interim group finance director.
Hudson (LinkedIn profile) will take over for Robyn Perriss, who will retire on June 30. Hudson, who first joined the company in 2013, will not join the Rightmove board after leaving her position.
The planned change was previously announced back in February in Rightmove’s annual report. The company said the recruitment process for a new group finance director is ongoing and planned to provide updates in due course.
“I would like to again thank Robyn for the material contribution she has made to Rightmove over the last 12 years and I wish her all the best for the future,” said Rightmove CEO Peter Brooks-Johnson. “I am delighted that Georgina has agreed to step into the role of Group Finance Director on an interim basis, and I look forward to continuing to work with her.”
In March, the company announced it was suspending dividends and future financial guidance for 2020 due to uncertainty around the impact of Covid-19 on its business.
