TalkTalk's Chief Financial Officer, Amy Stirling, announced Monday that she will be stepping down from the board at the end of May, and will be replaced by Stephen Maken, who has 15 years of experience in senior finance roles.

Maken will join the business on April 15th to enable a proper handover of the role.

Dido Harding, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, said: "We owe much to Amy for her pivotal role in creating and building TalkTalk. She has been at the very heart of the business since the beginning, and without her tremendous contribution TalkTalk would quite literally have never existed, let alone become the thriving business it is today. After 13 successful years with the business, I fully understand her decision to move on and wish her every success for the future.

"With Steve we gain a great new colleague with huge consumer experience who will be a strong cultural fit for TalkTalk. I look forward to working with him as he supports me and the board in shaping our future growth."

The share price edged 0.08% higher to 252p by 09:25 Monday.
