Hunter Boots has appointed Mark Reed to the post of chief financial officer. The former CFO, Benedict Smith, left the British company in August 2018 and is now group CFO at a marketing firm, Willams Lea Tag. Reed joins Hunter from Anya Hindmarch, a London-based accessories brand, where he had been CFO since 2017. He was previously finance director at Hackett, the menswear brand, for 13 years. Reed has also worked for Richemont, the accounting network of Grant Thornton and Deloitte South Africa. Other recent changes at Hunter include last year's appointments of Lizzie Samuels as merchandising director and of Roope Karmavuo as commercial director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
