Intu names interim CFO after board shuffle

Struggling UK shopping centre specialist Intu Properties has appointed Barbara Gibbes as its interim chief financial officer (CFO), a week after naming Matthew Roberts, former CFO, as its new chief executive.

Like Roberts, Gibbes will commence in the role as of April 29, but is not expected to be a part of the board. She joined the company as a director of finance in 2017.

Roberts has been appointed to replace outgoing chief executive David Fischel, who tendered his resignation last summer.

Fischel, who had been at the helm of intu since 2001, resigned from the top post after Intu’s merger with Hammerson fell through last spring. He has agreed to leave on 26 April.
