Sandpiper recruits former Sainsbury's Director

SandpiperCI has appointed the former Director of Corporate Finances at Sainsbury's as its Chief Financial Officer and IT Director.

Tony van der Hoorn, whose appointment was announced this week, has also worked for Littlewoods and Iceland, and previously held the role of CFO for two of New Zealand's largest retail businesses: Foodstuffs (food retail) and Farmlands (rural supplies).

Sandpiper’s CEO, Tony O’Neill, commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Tony van der Hoorn to Sandpiper. Tony has held a wide range of financial and operational leadership positions both here and abroad. He has an outstanding track record of managing financial and business operations for some very large organisations and we look forward to leveraging his expertise and experience as we continue to drive our retail business estate forward.”

Mr van der Hoorn added: “Sandpiper is a unique Channel Islands’ business and I am looking forward to working with the Sandpiper team to enhance the value of the company for all stakeholders and, in particular, to building on the success of the business in terms of the service it provides to its customers and the communities in which it operates.”

Mr van der Hoorn will replace Stephen Harrison, Sandpiper’s Group Finance Director, who is due to retire from his full-time role in June after 12 years with the company but will remain on the board as a Non-Executive Director.
