BANKNOTE printer De La Rue has appointed a new finance chief to replace Colin Child, who will step down after the firm’s 2015 annual general meeting.

Jitesh Sodha will join the group as chief financial officer and an executive director of the company on 10 August 2015.

Sodha most recently worked at Greenergy International, where he was CFO from 2008 until last month.

He has also held finance roles at Mobilestreams and at T-Mobile International UK.

Child’s departure from the company was announced in January.

De La Rue chairman Philip Rogerson said: “Jitesh’s wide ranging financial and commercial experience gained within a number of large international businesses will be an asset to the Company and I look forward to welcoming him to De La Rue.”

Shares in De La Rue went up by 0.93 per cent yesterday.
