Food & Drink

Real Good Food has unveiled a string of board-level changes, as it looks to calm investors following its shock profit warning last week.

The Liverpool-based food company said that Pieter Totté has resigned as Executive Chairman and will be leaving the group, effective immediately. Pat Ridgwell, a non-executive director, will serve as interim Chairman until a permanent successor to Totté has been named.

Additionally, Harveen Rai has been named as Finance Director and Company Secretary, effective 14 August 2017.  Rai, who was most recently CFO at Arzyrta UK, will take over from David Newman, who will be stepping down from the board with immediate effect.

Additional changes include non-executive director Christopher Thomas being made Executive Director, and Hugh Cawley being appointed as non-executive director.
