But far from being left in the lurch, the group has a ready replacement. Gavin Manson, currently a non-executive director, will take over the role, effective 1 October.  

With Unbound describing the replacement as a “highly experienced listed company CFO”, Manson has led digital and business transformations in the consumer sector in both the UK and internationally for over 30 years.

He has been a director of Hotter Shoes, Unbound Group's main trading business, since 2017 and was instrumental in developing the company's growth strategy, the company noted. 

At the same time, Manson will step down as Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee, also from 1 October and a search for a replacement has commenced. Kate Rock will be appointed as interim Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee from 1October.

Before departing, Lampard, together with chief executive Ian Watson, will present the company's interim results for the six months ended 31 July, on 20 September. 

Unbound chairman Neil Johnson said of Manson: “With his extensive and highly relevant public markets experience, and his deep knowledge of the business, he is ideally placed to support our Chief Executive Officer Ian Watson in delivering Unbound Group's strategy."
