Hargreaves Lansdown chief financial officer Tracey Taylor has decided to leave the firm after 15 years with the discount broker.
She will stand down as CFO and as a director with effect from 5 December but will remain with the group until 30 June next year, where she will oversee a number of operational projects.
The firm’s board has already started to look at finding permanent successor but until a replacement is found, Deloitte partner Simon Cleveland will be interim CFO.
Taylor had been in her current role since 2008.
Hargreaves Lansdown chief executive Ian Gorham says: “Tracey has contributed significantly to the ongoing growth and development of the group, and in transforming Hargreaves Lansdown from a private business to the FTSE100 company it is today.”
Taylor added: ”It has been a pleasure to work alongside Ian for the last four years, and with the founders Peter Hargreaves and Stephen Lansdown before him. I wish Hargreaves Lansdown continued success in the future.”
