IG Group CFO to depart this week

29 October 2015

Spread betting company IG Group has confirmed that Chris Hill is to step down from his role as chief financial officer this week after first announcing his departure in the summer.

As reported by iGaming Business, IG Group in August revealed that Hill was to exit his role at the company in order to take up a similar position with financial services firm Hargreaves Lansdown.

IG Group has now confirmed following a smooth handover of responsibilities to its finance team, it has been mutually agreed that Hill will officially step down as chief financial officer tomorrow (Friday).

Hill will remain employed by IG Group until the end of his notice period in early February or until he takes up his new role with Hargreaves Lansdown.

“The board and the management team are extremely grateful for the contribution Chris has made to IG over the last four years and for the professional manner in which he has handled his notice period to this point, and wish him every success in the future,” IG Group said in a statement.

IG Group also noted that its search for a successor to Hill is “progressing well” and it will update the market as soon as the process is completed.
