UK shirt maker Thomas Pink has appointed Andrew Merriman as its new chief financial officer.

Merriman, who joined the company last month, previously served as chief operating officer at Gieves and Hawkes, where he was responsible for finance, human resources, IT, logistics, inventory management and licensing.

Merriman left the London-based tailor last May, a month after it was acquired by Hong Kong based Trinity Ltd.

He has also worked for retailer Tie Rack, designer goods brand Alfred Dunhill and the Richemont Group.

A spokesperson for Thomas Pink, which is owned by luxury goods group LVMH, said the group's previous CFO has emigrated to Australia with his family.

The appointment comes a month after the shirt company opened its first store in Dehli, India.
