Loaf has appointed Anne Blixen-Finecke as its new CFO.
Anne joins having spent three years at Debenhams.

Charlie Marshall, founder and CEO of Loaf, comments: “We’re very excited to have Anne join us at Loaf. She’s a terrific talent with a superb track record and a wealth of experience. Anne was a crucial hire as we look to take Loaf to the next level, and I have no doubt she’ll achieve great things here.”

Loaf continues to deliver strong growth and is on track to see a double-digit rise in profits when its financial year ends in March.
