MYTRAVEL group finance director Kazia Kantor has
resigned with immediate effect after less than a year with the company.

Chartered accountant Kantor was appointed in November
2002, replacing David Jardine, at the height of MyTravel’s financial woes.

Her arrival was welcomed in City circles following her
restructure of ailing textile giant Coats Viyella.

Group chief executive Peter McHugh said: “With
our refinancing in place, Kazia is able to relinquish her post.”

She is succeeded on an interim basis by John
Darlington, who will be acting chief financial officer until a permanent
successor is appointed. 

Darlington, who has been employed by the company for a
couple of months to help turn around the company’s financial fortunes, was most
recently a special adviser to the group board at drinks company HP Bulmer.
