Hargreaves Lansdown’s CFO Tracey Taylor to exit

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.”
