Iceland’s joint managing director Nick Canning has left the company after almost 15 years service.

It’s believed Mr Canning reigned last weekend from his role with the company. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Canning who joined Iceland in 2003 is leaving the frozen food retailer to seek a “fresh challenge” an internal memo sent by chief executive Malcolm Walker and published in retailgazette says. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He joined the business as ‘people and customers executive director’ before taking on the role of joint managing director alongside Sir Malcolm Walker in 2014. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We both felt that it was the right time for him to move on and seek a fresh challenge, while he is still young and energetic enough to do so. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

I believe that he now intends to take a long break while he decides what to do next. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Nick remains a good friend and he leaves with our very best wishes for success in whatever direction his future career may take him.” Said Malcom Walker in a memo sent to Iceland staff. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
