Warehouse CFO Stephen Small dies suddenly

Warehouse CFO Stephen Small dies suddenly

May 16 (BusinessDesk) - Warehouse Group chief financial officer Stephen Small has died after two years with the retailer.

The Auckland-based company said in a statement after the market closed yesterday that Small died suddenly. He joined the country’s biggest listed retailer in April 2012, coming from General Motors Korea where he was chief financial officer.

“Stephen was a hugely respected member of our executive team and it is a shock to us all at this time,” chairman Ted van Arkel said. “Stephen will be greatly missed by our team. We send our deepest sympathies to his wife Yoko and his family who are in the thoughts and prayers of the entire company.”

Warehouse shares fell 0.3 percent to $3.37 yesterday, and have shed 9.9 percent this year.
