Sports Direct finance boss departs

Endaba Group

Sports Direct hit with another blow! Finance boss Matt Pearson is stepping down and Herbert Monteith will step in as the interim replacement. The news comes just weeks after the sportswear retailer saw the departure of its CEO Dave Forsey, leading Ashley to take the reins. The struggling pound caused Sports Direct to warn investors over falling profits, igniting doubt over Pearson’s role., The company has recently faced a drawn out dispute over warehouse working practices, subsequent shareholder revolt and numerous PR blunders lead to Sports Direct’s share price slump by nearly two thirds!
