Former Mothercare CFO Neil Harrington is set to join clothing and homewares retailer Cath Kidston later this year. 

"I can confirm he [Harrington] is joining us later in the year," a spokesperson for the company told just-style today (9 July).

Harrington resigned from children's wear retailer Mothercare in April after serving six years as financial director. The retailer is in the process of cutting its UK store count by one-third, from 311 to around 200 stores, as part of plans to turnaround its business.

He previously served as finance director of George at Asda in the UK, as well as group financial controller at clothing retailer French Connection.
