UK suit retailer Moss Bros Group has appointed Robin Piggott as its group finance director.

Piggott will take over the role from Bryan Portman, who has been interim CFO since April 2010. There will be a short handover period between the two.

His most recent role was at Alexon Group, where he is said to have played a significant role in Alexon's merger and acquisition strategy.

Brian Brick, CEO, said: "I am delighted to welcome Robin to the company. His experience and style will allow him to make an immediate contribution to the company, bringing new insights to the role."
