David Page to retire from a 40-year career in pawnbroking.
Albermarle & Bond group operations director David Page is set to retire from the group after 18 years service and nearly 40 years in the pawnbroking industry.
Page said: "I am immensely proud of what has been achieved with A&B, taking it from 10 stores to almost 140 stores today and I believe that the business has got an exciting future. I will remain a committed supporter and investor in the company."
Albermarle & Bond chief executive Barry Stevenson stressed that Page had been an integral part of the business for many years. He added: “David has had plans to retire from the company and this has enabled an effective succession plan to be implemented. Shareholders and colleagues I know will join me in thanking David for his contribution in building the business, and he leaves with all the team’s best wishes.”
Page will be succeeded by Nygel Scourfield who joined Albemarle & Bond as operations director in February. He has been shadowing Page since his arrival at the company and will take over Page’s responsibilities when he leaves.
Scourfield has a 20-year career in retail and has worked at major groups in the past including Home Retail and Kingfisher.
