The finance chief of Halfords, Andrew Findlay, is to join budget carrier easyJet in October as chief financial officer.
He will succeed Chris Kennedy following the announcement in January 2015 of his appointment as chief financial officer of ARM Holdings.
A further announcement on Kennedy's departure date will be made in due course, the airline said.
Findlay has been Halfords chief financial officer since February 2011 and was previously director of finance, tax and treasury at Marks & Spencer.
EasyJet chief executive, Carolyn McCall, said: "I and the easyJet team are delighted to welcome Andrew as CFO. He is a proven FTSE 250 CFO with great consumer experience and a strong focus on cost.
“He is part of the leadership team at Halfords which has created a much more customer centric and profitable business.
“Andrew is a great fit for easyJet and I am sure he will add a lot of value to the airline."
Findlay said: "This is an exciting time to be joining Europe's leading airline. Carolyn has built a fantastic team and with them I look forward to contributing to easyJet's continued success."
