Greencore chief financial officer (CFO) Alan Williams is to leave the Irish food company to take up the same position at UK building materials group Travis Perkins.

Mr Williams, who has spent nearly six years at the company, is to be replaced by Eoin Tonge, who has overseen the firm's UK grocery business since 2014.

He will take up the role on October 3, when he will also be appointed as a director of the company. Greencore said his predecessor would stay at the firm until the end of 2016 to ensure a smooth transition.

The appointment comes 10 years after Mr Tonge joined Greencore as capital markets director with responsibility for treasury, investor relations and communications.

In 2014 he was made managing director of the firm's UK grocery division and has been a member of the executive board since its inception in 2012.

Greencore chief executive Patrick Coveney praised his new CFO.
