Brakes Group finance chief Matthew Fearn is leaving the foodservice giant to join Greene King.

Fearn, who joined Brakes in 2007, will start at the brewer on 1 September.

He takes over from the outgoing Ian Bull, who is leaving Greene King to become CFO at bookmaker Ladbrokes.

“Matthew has extensive experience in consumer-facing leisure and food businesses and we look forward to him helping us continue to drive our exciting growth and development plans,” said Greene King chief executive Rooney Anand.

Brakes' new finance head will work alongside chief executive Stefan Barden, who was installed in the top role last year, soon after leaving Northern Foods.
