A new group finance director has been appointed by All Leisure Group to succeed Guy Marchant who leaves at the end of the month.

The cruise company, which runs the Voyages of Discovery, Swan Hellenic, Hebridean Island Cruises and Discover Egypt brands, has recruited Neil Morris to the role.

Morris moves from his position as a senior audit manager at the Gatwick office of accountancy firm Deloitte, a role he has held for five years.

His recent focus has been on the aviation and travel/hospitality sector, All Leisure said. Chairman Roger Allard added: “I would like to thank Guy Marchant for his contribution over the last three years and am delighted that Neil has accepted this position.”
