KMD Brands has announced interim arrangements following the planned departure of Group CFO Chris Kinraid on December 8, 2023. KMD Brands oversees Kathmandu, Rip Curl, and Oboz Footwear.
Ben Washington, Deputy CFO, will temporarily cover the financial and investor aspects of the group CFO role. Meanwhile, Lachlan Farran, Chief Commercial Officer, will assume the remaining operational responsibilities on an interim basis.

He also expressed eagerness to contribute before moving to the new role.
In his LinkedIn post, Kinraid extended gratitude to CEO and Managing Director Michael Daly, Chairman David Kirk, and colleagues Reuben Casey, Xavier Simonet, Mark Todd, John Harvey, Ben Washington, and Brad Seaman for their collaboration during his tenure.
