Former Bell Pottinger and 19 Entertainment finance chief Peter Harries has joined Next Fifteen as interim CFO in the wake of the departure of David Dewhurst.
Dewhurst’s resignation was announced at the end of October at the same time as the company issued a profits warning due to audit issues at Bite.
Next Fifteen said it continued to look for a permanent CFO and Harries may be a candidate.
Harries was the CFO of 19 Entertainment between 2004 and 2010 and was group finance director of Capital Radio before this. He was interim CFO at Bell Pottinger between August 2012 and June 2013, and recently completed a stint as interim finance director at Centaur Media.
